Snapper is a tool for Linux filesystem snapshot management. Apart from the
obvious creation and deletion of snapshots, it can compare snapshots and revert
differences between snapshots. In simple terms, this allows root and non-root
users to view older versions of files and revert changes.
The features include:
* Manually create snapshots
* Automatically create snapshots, e.g. when using a package manager
* Automatically create timeline of snapshots
* Show and revert changes between snapshots
* Works with btrfs, ext4 and thin-provisioned LVM volumes
* Supports Access Control Lists and Extended Attributes
* Automatic cleanup of old snapshots
* Command line interface
* D-Bus interface
* PAM module to create snapshots during login and logout (libpam-snapper)
