Looking for a good GUI archiver

Postby Zero Angel » 21 Oct 2017 05:23

Okay, i'm convinced that ark is garbage. I've had extraction problems with it before but now it won't even let me save any archives I have made.

Anyone know of a good archiving utility? I'm looking for something graphical as I want drag and drop functionality.

I'm using Double Commander as file manager which has double panes and an archiving funktion. Very comfortable for somebody whose first computer adventures were aided by Peter Norton. It's not "drag and drop" though but "mark and click the toolbar" which I prefer. Or maybe you can drag too ... never tried.

I'm using file-roller and it's good enough for me

Lucky Backup is excellent if you have the room. It is installed on Solydx 9. After the first time it only writes what has changed.

I agree, Lucky Backup is excellent.
I have a number of configured tasks and profiles saved, some scheduled, to backup anywhere from specific folders to entire partitions to both mounted drives and external drives. You can also make accumulative backups...
It is the core of my redundant backup plan.
The copies can retain the exact same folder structure so you can hunt down that one missing thing.
Also great for compiling data sets from various sources.
