Yes you can.
And, it's the only way to chain several ( max 8 ) backups.
Code:
pbackup -q "job1" "job2"

But remember to test the backup in gui first. I could be some warnings that should have been turned off.

Alright, I wont be using this for quite some time, but I'll keep it in mind. Does it have a config file in which it stores backup profiles? If so, upload a sample to www.pastebin.ca or somewhere for me to analyze, I could write a command line script to set up pbackup Smile (Please note "could," I have been very busy of late, I even have a Puppy To-Do list on my PDA with about 20 things on it, 3 high priority)

You already got one on your computer. Each backup job has a config-file, and there is a default one. But, they are not made for reading, they are made for execution. Look at /root/.pbackup/profiles/default.

Did I misunderstand? Do you have other files in dev_save directory that you want to save. Are these ordinary files which changes fileattributes, or are they sfs filesystems or similar. If so, they should be included in the full backup.


I have ordinary files in subdirectories of dev_save that I am changing, AND I have the content of my pup_save which is on dev_save that also is changing.

If I understand you correctly, I must have two jobs. One, to back up the pup_save by itself, the other to back up the other files on dev_save that are changing. Each of those will be a one-button backup. Is that the plan?

In other words, what I really have is a two-button backup. Wink

I'm afraid thats the truth. BUT, you can chain several jobs in one operation. This is not possible in GUI (yet), but with command pbackup -q "job1" "job2".

Well, well. One button here, one button there...

Sigmund, have you given up on the changelog (2nd post in this thread)? Last one done was 2.4.0. I usually like looking at those to see if I need to upgrade or not.

Also, I don't know if you mentioned it earlier (the thread is getting pretty long) but for upgrades, do we just write over the previous version, or should we remove the earlier version first?

Embarassed I'll update the changelog

Update: Just install the new pet package. The only thing you'll loose is the job called 'default'. It will be overwritten by a fresh one.

When 2.50 arrive, you'll be able to combine jobs. Let's try to keep it a 'one-button-backup' Smile

Hi Zigbert, gone but not totally forgotten, missing puppy speed and tools like yours!
Will be trying 2.17 beta soon. PC linux works very well but is slooooow compared to Puppy.
Probably will boot to puppy for most and then PClinux for what Puppy can't
Thanks for all the hard work
Tony
