I'm looking for a new backup solution to replace rdiff-backup.

So far I think storeBackup offers what I need, but I'm missing some kind of test mode (--dry-run).
It would be usefull to:
1) check if configuration works as expected (e.g. the except/include switches)
2) find new/modified/deleted files in the source directory

Is this already possible or is it planned for the future?

Best regards,
