This repository provides bup - an efficient backup program based on git. Bup allows you to do incremental backups of your data. It keeps a track of previous versions of the files as well, so you can restore earlier versions of your files if you need. Thanks to the underlying mechanisms used, bup also deals very well with large files (such as VM disk images), which otherwise take a long time to back up using other approaches (e.g. when using rsync).
