Easy Backup Your Files With Dkopp

DVDs are slowly becoming the past, because they are being replaced by Blu-ray technology, however they are still frequently used to archive videos and files which are too big for normal 700 MB CD.

dkopp is a free open source Linux program used to copy or back-up disk files to DVD. Full or incremental backups can be done, with full or incremental DVD verification. A GUI is used to navigate through directories to select or de-select files or directories at any level. Backup jobs can be saved for later re-use. New, deleted, and updated disk files are handled automatically, without re-editing the backup job. An incremental backup updates the same DVD used for a prior full backup. Files can be restored to the same or another location on disk. Large backup jobs can be done using multiple DVD media.

The same tool is not distinguished by any unusual features. It simply allows to do an backup of selected folders and supports archiving of only the data that have changed since the last backup.

You can download the package for 32-bit Ubuntu:

wget http://kornelix.squarespace.com/storage/packages/dkopp-5.1-32.deb
And also 64-bit:

wget http://kornelix.squarespace.com/storage/packages/dkopp-5.1-64.deb
At the end, just type the command which will install Dkopp:

sudo dpkg -i dkopp-5.1-32.deb
All these operations can also be made using the mouse, but I think that a console should not be something what causes the fear, even in a begginer.
