Can some one suggest me an alternative to deja-dup which fits well in KDE desktop, I mean by appearance and integration ? I need the following features.

  1. It should auto detect the insertion of my external hard disk and start the backup with notification.
  2. It should remind me that backups are due and ask me to insert the external hard disk.

Please suggest a graphical application, not a command line one.

take a look of this:

Back In Time is a simple backup tool for Linux.

All you have to do is configure:

  • Where to save snapshot
  • What directories to backup
  • When backup should be done (manual, every hour, every day, every week, every month)

sudo dnf install backintime-qt4

I use it too (albeit with gnome). It can be configured to backup automatically when you plug in the backup hard drive (I use it that way); it does not give a graphical notification though.
