Snaprunner: Open Source Extension for Drive Snapshot

about SnapRunner and Acronis True Image, Drive SnapShot · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I switched from Acronis True Image to Drive Snapshot because of some very annoying bugs in ATI. Drive Snapshot does what it does flawlessly. It however misses a couple features I needed. So I wrote SnapRunner , a wrapper script in Python which adds some functionality. It's open source and can be used and extended by anyone.

It adds following features:

  • Alternately creates full and differential backups in certain intervals.
  • Clean-up of either differential and or full backups which are older than a given amount of days.
  • Status mail upon successful/failed backup runs.
  • Automatically creates meaningful backup file names by including machine, drive, date/time and backup generation count.
  • Provides simulation of backup and clean-up.
