bup - Backup program using rolling checksums and git file formats
bup [global options...] <command> [options...]
bup is a program for making backups of your files using the git file format. Unlike git(1) itself, bup is optimized for handling huge data sets including individual very large files (such a virtual machine images). However, once a backup set is created, it can still be accessed using git tools. The individual bup subcommands appear in their own man pages.
--version print bup's version number. Equivalent to bup-version(1) -d, --bup-dir=BUP_DIR use the given BUP_DIR parameter as the bup repository location, instead of reading it from the $BUP_DIR environment variable or using the default ~/.bup location.
COMMONLY USED SUBCOMMANDS
bup-fsck(1) Check backup sets for damage and add redundancy information bup-ftp(1) Browse backup sets using an ftp-like client bup-fuse(1) Mount your backup sets as a filesystem bup-help(1) Print detailed help for the given command bup-index(1) Create or display the index of files to back up bup-on(1) Backup a remote machine to the local one bup-restore(1) Extract files from a backup set bup-save(1) Save files into a backup set (note: run "bup index" first) bup-web(1) Launch a web server to examine backup sets
RARELY USED SUBCOMMANDS
bup-damage(1) Deliberately destroy data bup-drecurse(1) Recursively list files in your filesystem bup-init(1) Initialize a bup repository bup-join(1) Retrieve a file backed up using bup-split(1) bup-ls(1) Browse the files in your backup sets bup-margin(1) Determine how close your bup repository is to armageddon bup-memtest(1) Test bup memory usage statistics bup-midx(1) Index objects to speed up future backups bup-newliner(1) Make sure progress messages don't overlap with output bup-random(1) Generate a stream of random output bup-server(1) The server side of the bup client-server relationship bup-split(1) Split a single file into its own backup set bup-tick(1) Wait for up to one second. bup-version(1) Report the version number of your copy of bup.
