If you are the administrator of a large file catalog or a software directory, integrity of your data is your primary concern. When hundreds of files are added to the archive every day, manual backups become virtually impossible and full backups are obviously inefficient due to the free disk space required for this operation. If this is the case with, incremental backups will be just what you need. But how do you go about choosing the right tool for this task? If you are still at a crossroads, take a closer look at ZipSnap!
ZipSnap is an extremely compact and free command-line Java application created for fast and efficient backups. The concept behind ZipSnap is rather simple: it creates archives that are essentially collections of you point-in-time snapshots. A typical ZipSnap archive consists of catalogs (plain text files compressed as ZIP files) and compressed volumes (ZIP files). When a new backup is performed, a new compressed volume is created containing the difference with the previous one. Catalogs only contain information about the snapshots and their content. Each new snapshot is automatically timestamped, so you always know when this or that backup was made. The great thing about ZipSnap is that it runs on any OS with Java Runtime Environment (JRE 6+) installed. The process of restoring your backups is no rocket science as well — just run a simple command and the software will do the rest!
