GAdminRsync is a C/GTK+ graphical user interface for the rsync Client and Server.
Multiple backup sets that can be scheduled to run at specific times via cron. Each of these backup sets can contain multiple remote or local data backups. Backup sets that are started via cron schedules will generate log files for each of the data backups in the backup sets. The backup logfiles will have the same names as the individual backup sets. Individual backup sets can be run manually and the progress can be viewed in the progress tab. Remote backups are fully automatic, differential and encrypted. Keys are created for each host, uploaded and then installed on the remote hosts using a combination of ssh-keygen/scp and ssh. This also makes remote synchronizations scheduleable. The first time GAdmin-Rsync is opened a wizard will ask for information about the backup the user wishes to make. This wizard will also be shown for all other backups but the user can modify the settings freely as well. Viewing and modifying logfiles of selected backup sets. Viewing mounted discs and information about them.
