Hi folks.

Bumping up an old but useful thread, with many thanks
to forum member r__hugues for remembering

(Suggestion: Browse the thread backwards, if you wish
to get the updates, the corrections and the locales.)

BFN.

Hi guys.

A few notes --

1) Double-checking, I realized the *.desktop file had not been corrected
with nilson morales' correction. So here goes.

Please install ASRI's version of the pet, then squish the original
"Pupsave-hot-backup.desktop" file at /usr/share/applications with
the following:
Quote:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Pupsave hot backup: backup pupsave file
Name[fr]=Pupsave hot backup : sauvegarder le fichier pupsave
Comment=Pupsave hot backup: backup pupsave file
Comment[fr]=Pupsave hot backup : sauvegarder le fichier pupsave
Icon=mini-diskette.xpm
Exec=pupsave-hot-backup
# pupsaverestore
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Archiving
GenericName=Pupsave hot backup: backup pupsave file

2) For modern Pups (i.e. Pups since late 2014), this utility does not know
what to do with the /mnt/home symlink.

In the 2nd line (please see screen capture above), i.e. the destination line,
the user has to specify the partition if the entry says "/mnt/home".

E.g. if your /mnt/home is /mnt/sda1, you have to fetch sda1 plus the
proper destination directory
in the GTK file list, by clicking on the folder
icon at the right. Similarly, if your /mnt/home is at /mnt/sdb2, you have to
fetch /mnt/sdb2, and so on.

3) This utility copies a live pupsave and adds a time and date stamp to it:
that's all it does. If you need to save space, you have to use zip or PackIt
or your favorite archiver to compress the BCK file it creates, as an
additional step.


4) Finally, as ASRI mentioned above, please keep in mind this utility is for
pupsave files, NOT folders.

BFN.
