NAME
       bedup - deduplication program with additional knowledge of burp

SYNOPSIS
       bedup [options]

       A file deduplication program with additional knowledge of burp protocol
       1 storage directories. This program comes with the burp backup and  re-
       store package.

OPTIONS
       -c path
	      Path to config file (default: /etc/burp/burp.conf).

       -g <list	of group names>
	      Only  run	 on  the directories of	clients	that are in one	of the
	      groups specified.	The list is comma-separated. To	put  a	client
	      in  a group, use the 'dedup_group' option	in the client configu-
	      ration file on the server.

       -h|-?  Print help text and exit.

       -d     Delete any duplicate files found.	(non-burp mode only, use  with
	      caution!)

       -l     Hard link	any duplicate files found.

       -m  <number>
	      Maximum  number  of  hard	links to a single file.	(non-burp mode
	      only - in	burp mode, use the max_hardlinks option	in the config-
	      uration  file) The default is 10000. On ext3, the	maximum	number
	      of links possible	is 32000, but space is needed for  the	normal
	      operation	of burp.

       -n <list	of directories>
	      Non-burp mode. Deduplicate any (set of) directories.

       -v     Print  duplicate	paths.	Useful if you want to double check the
	      files that would be hard linked or deleted before	 running  with
	      one of those options turned on.

       -V     Print version and	exit.

       By  default, bedup will read /etc/burp/burp.conf	and deduplicate	proto-
       col 1 client storage directories	using special knowledge	of the	struc-
       ture.

       With '-n', this knowledge is turned off and you have to specify the di-
       rectories to deduplicate	on the command	line.  Running	with  '-n'  is
       therefore dangerous if you are deduplicating burp storage directories.

       If you find bugs, please	report them to the email list. See the website
