    M-Backup is a tool for making backup of important system files and other important system information. There are many important files that are scattered over the system which needs to be regularly backed up. Keeping track of all these files is quite painful.

    M-Backup is a command line tool that will backup all these files. System administrators can add more files to the list of files that needs to be backed up according to needs.

    M-Backup can even be used for inventory purpose, for keeping record of various configuration information.

    Run by simply issuing the command ./ after logging in as root. It will create a directory MBackup under root's home directory and store the various system information. It will also create a log file that will list all the files and other information that was saved. If mbackup is added in crontab, it can do the jobs automatically.
