New question #142032 on Simple Backup:
I have some suggestions that I think would further improve usability of Simple
Backup. Since they're not bugs, I file them as questions here. Please inform me
if I should split these into separate questions and/or bugs.
From the status icon, I think it would be really great to have a menu entry
that opens the Simple Backup Configuration window. This could come instead of
the 'About Simple Backup' window that now pops up. (By the way, the menu entry
'Simple Backup' is confusing; if it opens the 'About', it should say so.)
From the Config and the Restore windows it would be great to have a button
that takes you to the other one. So, the Config window would have a button
'Restore', for example next to the 'Profile Manager' button in the taskbar.
The Restore window would get a 'Config' button, for example to the left of
'Help' button in the top-right corner.
Finally, I really like the calendar view in the Restore window. But sometimes
it is convenient to just get a list of all backups, with some additional
information like diskspace used (and possibly total filesize included). (Now I
ssh into my backup server, cd to backup directory and do 'ls' or 'du' or
whatever.) So there should be buttons to switch between 'calendar' and 'list'
I wouldn't mind spending (some) time implementing these, but would need some
pointers and help to get started.
