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.

Your "hot backup" is Very well written.
Good code technique.
Your BASH skills far exceed mine !
Be proud of your work !
...
We really like the way you check the OS for requirements,
and then provide a Date-Time-Stamp extension, and ".tar.gz".
We would like to add this feature into "Packit".
...
Have used Linux and Puppy distributions for 7 years.
Now,we Moved on into UpupBB.03 +15 .
PeaBee has done fine work there, with repeated refinements.
...
We make frequent use of our modified version of "/usr/sbin/save2flash",
in which I give proper credit to the author,
and made simple mods to the display splash.
...
We used 'hot backup' for a long time, as pupsave-backup 1.2.1
Worked really fine in original form.
We made mods to suit our application needs in our shop.
...
Still make frequent use of our 'modified' version
of your "hot backup" pupsave-backup 1.2.1 ,
about 7 times a day.
...
Our version is titled "pupsave-back-2-tar",
and we placed your name credit in the header
and in the script code
as you are the original author of the original "hot backup".
...
[#* Note: rationale for our version :
#* We always "save2flash" manually, custom script, with an icon on desktop.
#* We Never allow automatic SnapMergePuppy .
#* etoN:]
...

So, we started tinkering with your "pupsave-backup 1.2.1".
Then, we started culling options and code which we never required.
(1) culled the code referring to SnapMergePuppy.
(2) defaulted to a backup to file.tar.gz always.
(3) culled extra dialogs that were always answered positively.
(4) killed a lingering splash box ( remained forever ).
So, now it just does a "Backup-2-Tar", and does not conflict with "save2flash".
...
Attached is our newly modified version , in zip file, dated 191204,
for your perusal and comment.
...
We do not intend our version to be a replacement for your excellent project.
We look forward to reading through your new v: 1.3 .
...
Our real projects are at www.GeoCities.WS/glenE77is/
published in Europe on ResearchGate.net.

Subject description: mods to original for defaulted functions, revised.
 

Guys,

UPDATE
.
We have uploaded a zip file of our mod version of your "Hot Backup",
dated 191207-1945
.
Fixed or hid some little bugs from the original.
.
We tried to get the version from 2014-0515, "phb-core" running
in this system, UpupBB-03+15, but it failed.
Peeking into the code did not reveal he error.
Perhaps his distro of Puppy Linux has a dependency.
.

Our work was a revision of "pupsave-backup 1.2.1" by 2byte.
Our script is titled "/usr/sbin/" "upupsave-back-2-tar"
and it runs successfuly in :
Tahr-606, UpupBB-03 ( +10, +12, +14, +15 ) .

.
Attached are screen shots.

An excellent extension of this utility would be to back up the saved save file to an online host, eg your google drive, using the drive command or rclone

p310don,
Thanks for the idea,
I would like to read more details.
.
My BASH is not as good as 2byte's skills,
so, I welcome assistance ... all the way from Australia ! .
.
Sharing ideas is a good thing about this forum.
.
We share / exchange ideas, to help, without criticism.
.
We only use a manual link/posting to on-line hosts,
due to security concerns.

...
