       bedup  - program for deduplication program with additional knowledge of


       bedup [options]

       A file deduplication program with additional knowledge of burp  storage
       directories.  This  program  comes  with  the  burp  backup and restore


       -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
              configuration file on the server.

       -h|-?  Print help text and exit.

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

       -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
              configuration 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  client
       storage directories using special knowledge of the structure.

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