Backuppc always had a slow and silent development and version 4
will change many things, so its normal to not see any changes
But dont worry, taking a few minor errors (most with patchs
or workarounds over the net), current backuppc works well.

It works fine, you can use it with several types of backup, but
these is what mot people want, backup via rsyncd (started only when
the backup is needed via windows rpc calls) and with VSS support
that gave 2 packages to help the admin to setup things:

Mine is easier to install for unix/linux admins (its a simple
copy, with smbnetfs its great for scripting), Michael one is easier for
windows admins, for user knowledge users or for few machines. Also,
Micheal also have WOL support, but i want to add that also in a few
Either way, any VSS problem, please check the goodjobsucking.com
site, as i add all the problems and solutions i found when i installed
over 500 windows clients with windows xp, vista, 7, 2003, 2008, 32bit
and 64bit. After the initial setup, it usually works well (any problem
just reboot the windows and confirm that you have enough free space)
Other method popular is to use ssh in windows:
So yes, BackupPC works fine on Unix/Linux/*BSD, MacOSX and all
Windows above 2000 (below XP you don't have VSS, but can still backup
Naturally the common people don't want war... but after all it is the
leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a
simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or
a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.
