This class can be used to manage backup copies of files.

It can take a file with a list of files to create backup copy to a given backup directory.

The class can determine which files changed since the last backup session before creating a compressed tar archive of the old backup directory and copying the new files.

It can also generate a log and send an e-mail message with the list of files that changed.

Number 7
Keeping backup copies of vital files is a task that all sites should perform regularly in order to recover from eventual accidents or destructive security attacks.

Often it is necessary to keep not one but several sets of backup copies of the same files taken on different moments, in case it is necessary to recover information that is no longer available in the latest backup sessions.

This class provides an efficient incremental backup solution that only copies copies of files that changed since the last backup session. At the same time it rotates the backup archives so old backup data is still available.
