MacVault is a simple and command line based automated Ruby-scripted and git-based set-and-forget backup utility for your Mac.
Here's how MacVault works in a nutshell:
· Backups are done by symlinking .git in the backed-up location to a .git in the backup folder on the backup volume. Simple git commands record and store everything not ignored by a .gitignore file.
· The backup task is controlled by Mac's launchctl / launchd / launchd.plist. You simply select a backup volume -- any volume that is mounted into /Volumes is allowed. This could be an external drive, a local secondary hard disk or a network location. The backup task will then run every 5 minutes whenever the selected backup volume is available.
Backups are stored and updated in a packed git repository on the backup volume. You can navigate there and easily unpack it (git checkout .) on the backup volume to look at files and restore them manually, or you can restore a file path back to where it came from.
