The (Not So) Simple Backup suite, short just nssbackup, is a fork of the SBackup project, the Simple Backup suite. nssbackup is basically using the same technology that Unix administrators have been used for decades but it adds some some intelligence for interaction with users within a graphical interface. This means dumps of files were created using the good old TAR but the usage is much more convenient than from a command line.
The (Not So) Simple Backup suite is the successor to SBackup. It was started in the SBackup SVN repository, but shares no code. Our project adds new features like handling of log files, a plug-in framework, status indication and many more that were requested by users. Lots of bugs that were experienced in SBackup are fixed in (Not So) Simple Backup suite.
All the time compatibility between nssbackup and sbackup was, and will, preserved.
So basically, nssbackup and sbackup are doing the same job. Please note that practically no effort is spend on sbackup and we would strongly advise you to use (Not So) Simple Backup suite instead.
