If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade dar -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

dar is a shell command, that makes backup of a directory tree and files. It has been tested under Linux, Windows (95, 2000, NT, XP, 7), OpenSolaris, FreeBSD and NetBSD, and has been reported as working under Mac OS X 10.3 (where it takes care of file forks but not of the ACL).

External GUI are possible and exist thanks to the libdar library and its API, which is contained in within this source package.

dar is a set of six commands over libdar library:

  • dar
  • dar_xform
  • dar_slave
  • dar_manager
  • dar_static (statically linked version of dar, not all system support static linking)
  • dar_cp

This library is part of dar and licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL in the following), like all the source code of the Dar suite programs. This imply that you can link libdar to your programs at the condition that your programs are also covered by the GPL, which says in particular that you must provide source code of your programs.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
