Black Mirror 1.2

Black Mirror is an application that syncs and backs up data between one or more computers and external storage devices.
Black Mirror is an application that syncs and backs up data between one or more computers and external storage devices. With Black Mirror you can easily synchronize your data between two or more computers and back up it on an external storage device at the same time.

If you have two computers which should sync their files with each other, you just need an external hard disk, which will Black Mirror automatically use as a backup storage. That way, you can never accidentally delete a file forever.

And because Black Mirror is written in Perl, it is platform-independent, i.e., you can use the exact same program on every computer to keep them in sync, no matter what OS they're running.

INSTALLATION AND USAGE:

After installing the application with the supplied setup script, you can simply start backing up your files with a command that looks like that:

blkmror {desired_directory} {external_harddisk}

Of course, the two arguments in braces are two paths to the respective folders or drives. Then you just sync the files with

blkmror {external_harddisk} {desired_directory}

to the other computer. From now on, you always can reverse the process to keep your files in sync, you don't even have to run through the whole process.

The only thing to remember is that the first path (the source directory) is the one that contains the "more recent" files. (Don't worry if you swapped the arguments, nothing would happen.)

What's New in This Release:

Relative paths as arguments work properly. [Bugfix]
Improved error reports on the command line.
Symbolic links will not be backed up or synchronized. [Bugfix]
New switches: "Sync attributes/modes of files too", "Remove x-modes from files", "No special treatment for packages", "Clean up backup directory".
Improvements of the backup procedure, including notifications.
Upgrade scripts for an easier updating process.
