TimeDicer (Windows client/server backup solution)

http://www.timedicer.co.uk/ wrote:TimeDicer is a free file backup and recovery solution (using rdiff-backup) for Windows (Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2008 R2, Windows 2008, Windows 2003 - for 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x64). It allows you to backup and then later recover your files to/from a separate machine, with an option for offsite mirroring. Even if you have subsequently altered or deleted files, and backed up your erroneous changes with TimeDicer, you can still recover versions that you previously backed up.
TimeDicer Server is a customized Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS (see Webpage). TimeDicer Client current version (v4.0324, released 2014-03-24) is available from http://www.timedicer.co.uk/.

Topic update: TimeDicer last Windows (Client) release is v8.0415, dated 2018-04-15 (changelog at at https://www.timedicer.co.uk/changelog.txt).

Further quote to better highlight Timedicer's client/server nature:
TimeDicer consists of:
  • TimeDicer Client: a Windows command script (batch file) which can be run as a regular (daily) Scheduled Task to backup data from one or many Windows computers to the primary backup server. It allows backup of locked files. The latest version of TimeDicer Client is 8.0415 (dated 2018-04-15), available here (changelog here). TimeDicer Client can backup to any Linux machine which has rdiff-backup, but for best integration it is recommended to use a dedicated TimeDicer Server. Instructions for installing and configuring TimeDicer Client are found below.
  • TimeDicer Server: based on Ubuntu Server OS, for onsite backup - simple setup instructions below. It can be a virtual machine.
  • TimeDicer Mirror Server: an optional machine like the TimeDicer Server, but offering secondary (e.g. offsite) backup

Pushing topic to "CLI Submissions" as Timedicer's Windows Client is a CLI program.
