Box Backup is an FREE, completely automatic on-line backup system for UNIX.

Here are some key features of "Box Backup":

All backed up data is stored on the server in files on a filesystem; no tape or archive devices are used
The server is trusted only to make files available when they are required; all data is encrypted
A backup daemon runs on systems to be backed up, and copies encrypted data to the server when it notices changes
Only changes within files are sent to the server, just like rsync
Old versions of files on the server are stored as changes from the current version
Behaves like tape -- old versions and deleted files are available
Choice of backup behaviour, optimised for document or server backup
Designed to be easy and cheap to run a server. Portable implementation, and RAID implemented in userland for reliability without complex server setup or expensive hardware. (optional)

What's New in This Release:

The diffing algorithm was highly optimised for speed.
Bugs were fixed. Solaris support was added.
Portability improvements were made, including a new autoconf based build.
Xattrs are supported on Linux and Darwin, which backs up resource forks under Mac OS X.
Experimental features include keep-alive on long diffing operations, saving state for non-server use, a native Win32 port, and support for MinGW and MSVC under Win32.
