My Backup

Your rating: None Average: 5 (10 votes)

Allows to add arbitrary files and dconf keys to Sailfish OS backups. Requires Sailfish OS 3.2 or greater.

Sailfish OS applications can declare what they need to be added to the backup by providing [X-HarbourBackup] section in their desktop file, which looks like this:


BackupPathList is a colon-separated list of files and directories to backup. Paths are relative to the home directory. Directory names end with a slash and are copied recursively. Absolute paths are ignored.

BackupConfigList is a colon-separated list of dconf keys and groups. Similarly to directories, group names end with a slash and are saved and restored recursively. There is one important difference, though - the existing contents of dconf groups is lost during restore and is completely replaced by whatever was saved in the backup.
