Krsync - A Kommander based GUI frontend for rsync

Filed under

Krsync is a simple GUI frontend for the famous rsync to synchronize files and directories between systems or even two different directories on the same server. Krsync is a Kommander based GUI for rsync.

For those who are familiar with rysnc and its advanced options can find this GUI extremely handy as every other option is a click of a checkbox. The most appealing feature is that you can generate a shell script from the last run krsync backup which can be used in a CRON job and schedule it for regular file syncs.

Other interesting features include:

* The DRY run which does a test run to check if it looks OK

* Disk Space check which again runs a dry run and sees if the disk space is sufficient.

* Create Profiles for different krsync sessions
