SafeKeep is a centralized and easy to use backup application that combines the best features of a mirror and an incremental backup. It sets up the appropriate environment for compatible backup packages and simplifies the process of running them.

This project is an effort to autobuild safekeep packages for Ubuntu.

Even though it uses rdiff-backup (using librsync) like other backup tools, SafeKeep differs from tools like Deja-Dup (using duplicity) in that it uses a simple XML style configuration syntax to configure backups. The up-to-date remote backups live in a file system that is accessible to the user directly. Previous versions can be accessed using rdiff-backup to apply the reverse diffs.
