BackupCopy version 1.0

By Nigel Tromans, January 2013

BackupCopy is a tool for copying, synchronising, mirroring and archiving
filesystems up to entire partitions. I backup my files by keeping a copy of
my partitions on a big external hard-drive, and I also have two main AROS
machines (desktop and netbook) that I want to keep identical in their file
structure; BackupCopy is designed to help with these types of operations.
It is principally a shell program, but can be launched from its icon.

This program can be freely distributed provided all the files in the archive
are kept together including this file. They are not to be distributed for
profit. If anyone wishes to modify the code (written using Hollywood) that's
fine so long as reference is made to my original work.


By its nature, BackupCopy overwrites and deletes files. I have tested it on
my systems, but cannot absolutely guarantee it is totally error free and will
function as expected under all circumstances, especially as it depends upon
the correct functioning of underlying Hollywood and AROS/AmigaOS functions
over which I have no control. It is operated at the user's own risk and I
cannot take any responsibility for loss of data through it. If you plan to
use this program with important data, I would thoroughly recommend you do a
full backup e.g. to DVD before trying BackupCopy on your system for the first
time. Please read the full instructions for BackupCopy

BackupCopy has been written for and fuly tested on AROS; in the 'Other_OS'
folder are executables for OS3, OS4 and MorphOS. Please note that while the
OS3 version has been (briefly) tested, the OS4 and MorphOS versions not at all
as I do not have access to these.
