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. WARNING! 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_Instructions.PDF). 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.
