Jewel, this sounds like a good idea, especially complemented by the
Simple vs Advanced Modes that Ante proposed where -all- folders have
such a checkmark-option.

Bacula, isn't that a complete backup solution for small and medium
businesses? Using this for home-backups is a bit like using OpenOffice
to edit a config file. It works, but we'll probably never use even 1%
of its power. Anyhow, it's a very noble objective!

Ugh. Me wants beach too. Me works. Me unlucky.

PS: As a sidenote, this whole discussion also brings me to a
'synchronisation'-tool. A tool that can sync my laptops home-folder
with my Desktop home-folder. This woul probably be something similar
to a backup tool, except that it'd have to work in both directions.
Does something like that exists?
