gbDar is a graphical frontend for the Disk ARchiving utility (DAR).

It is written in Gambas, which is an excellent Integrated Development Environment(IDE) for Linux.

This version is 100% based on a version which is written in Pascal using FreePascal and the Lazarus IDE.

Basically this program gives you the ability to create disk archives which can be used as backups of your files.

Later on these archives can be used to restore completely or selectively.

New archives created can be based on previous archives.

As such it are differential backups which you create.
