Doing backups the easy way. Plugin your USB drive and let the Pika do the rest for you.

Features

Setup new backup repositories or uses existing ones
Create backups locally and remote
Save time and disk space because Pika Backup does not need to copy known data again
Encrypt your backups
List created archives and browse through their contents
Recover files or folders via your file browser

Pika Backup is powered by the well-tested borg-backup software.

Limitations

Currently, scheduled backups are not supported. Excluding files from a backup via regular expressions and alike is not implemented yet. Pika Backup is designed to save your personal data and does not support complete system recovery.

Pika Pika!

I’d love a GUI for Windows. Borg is a great system, not many people use it though because it’s pretty nerd-centric.

the problem is that borg backup isn’t available for windows. I wanted to use vorta on windows, but that one doesn’t work on windows as well.
