luckyBackup – free and open source, powerful, fast and reliable backup and sync tool


  • There are two modes of operation of the luckyBackup program: it can be run as a superuser or as a regular user. If you are going to create a backup of your data, you can run it as a regular user, but if you are going to create a system backup, you must do it as a superuser;
  • luckyBackup copies over only the changes you’ve made to the source directory and nothing more. Whatever changes you make to the source including adding, moving, deleting, modifying files/directories etc, will have the same effect to the destination. Owner, group, time stamps, links and permissions of files are preserved (unless stated otherwise);
  • It is possible to create multiple backups of “snapshots”. Rolling back to any of the snapshots is possible;
  • Sync. Sync any directories keeping the files that were most recently modified on both of them;
  • luckyBackup first checks whether the directories you’ve declared exist or if they are empty and warns you accordingly;
  • Remote connections. Remote connections are possible, either for use as a source or as a destination;
  • You can execute any command(s) before or after a specific task;
  • You can create a configuration profile with preset settings;
  • It is possible to create lists of exclusion/inclusion of files based on ready-made templates or user-defined ones;
  • You can set up a backup schedule;
  • You can send reports by email;
  • There is a command line mode;
  • Support for notifications;
  • Support for the recovery function;
  • Logfile.
