User reviews of rsync backup for Android
Makkelijk te automatiseren backup van bestanden op de telefoon (of tablet) naar een eigen computer of server. Fijner dan spullen aan de 'cloud' toevertrouwen.

Works great!, I had to use a Linux box to create dropbear keys for windows and cygwin, Smooth sailing after that.

Awesome app for Linux geeks. Unattended backups using Tasker to schedule. Auto sync music library. Excellent!

Seems to need root Looks very promising and transparent (ssh, rsync to my computer instead of some cloud), however it tries to create a local /data/.ssh directory, which fails miserably on my non-rooted device. Very promising, but very unfortunate.

Almoust perfect, BUT - no ICONV support Tool works good with ssshd server, however there is one tink makes it useless.. I have many russian files on phone - and their names are corrupted while copeing to windows machine. And the rsync binary doesnt support the iconv... That is bad. Is it possible to have it with this?

UNRESPONSIVE DEV, OK otherwise I have issues connecting when on LTE, Can only connect on WiFi. Emailed Dev to inquire whether this was a limitation of the app or possibly android or maybe even my particular service provider. I also had a question about permissions and setting timestamps. NO REPLY. Otherwise, this app is simple to use, and quite powerful if you're familiar with command line rsync. If not a Google search for "man rsync" will give you all the info you need. STILL NO REPLY!!!!

Works well, can't backup /data because it doesn't request su The program works very well, but it doesn't request super user, so it can't backup all folders such as /data/
