Tapestry Backup Utility
Early on, I decided that my unnecessarily time consuming backup process could very well be automated. At the time, I was thinking of learning Python anyway, so I decided to write Tapestry in that - first in 2.7 and, later, in 3.6. Tapestry peforms what I call a "Blockwise Packaging" algorithm and then packages and encrypts its backups with a minimum of disk overhead. The whole project is currently under active development.
