Burp is a program that backs up and restores data. It uses librsync in order to save on the amount of space that is used by each backup. It also uses VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to make snapshots when backing up Windows computers.

This release adds an automated test script, a "min_file_size" option, a fixed "max_file_size" option, generic server-side pre/post scripts, a server script for doing extra SSL certificate checks, a "max_hardlinks" option which limits the number of times a single file is hardlinked in storage, a "-i" option which prints an index table of symbols, backups which carry on when files cannot be opened, spotting of Windows EFS directories and files (and warnings about them), an "estimate" option, a flexible way of passing new fields from the client to the server, and small bugfixes.

This release fixes a critical path comparison typo bug. If you have been using 1.2.4 either as a server or as a client, you need to upgrade immediately. Backups made with 1.2.4 should be treated as suspicious. A 'max_file_size' option has been added. This release will store Windows file attributes in a separate field from the standard Unix ones.

This release adds a file deduplication program, "bedup".
It adds a network_timeout parameter; the default is 7200 seconds (2 hours). It adds an option to send success notifications only if there were warnings. It will try to create the pidfile directory if it doesn't exist. It restores times on Windows files, and restores read-only/hidden attributes on Windows. It fixes a bug in the 'keep' mechanism where setting 'keep=2' would delete both backups. It will only install clientconfdir/testclient with 'make install' if clientconfdir didn't previously exist. It fixes a possible segfault when resume mode triggers with nothing to resume.

This release adds multiple retention periods (e.g, keep 1 backup per day for 7 days, 1 backup per week for 4 weeks, 1 backup per 4 weeks for a year). See the 'keep' option in the man page. A network send rate-limiting feature was added. There are small bugfixes.

Improvements to the counters and status monitor, a simple backup 'resume' mode, a "daily summary via email" feature, the addition of the number of warnings to the subject of notification emails, the ability to exclude files by extensions, server reload on SIGHUP, instructions for Windows 7 bare metal restore, and other smaller fixes.
