A flexible backup tool

o Uses dump, afio, GNU tar, cpio, star, pax, or zip archivers
o Full and numbered levels of incremental backup (acts like "dump")
o Compression and buffering options for all backup types
o Does remote filesystems (over rsh/ssh; no special service)
o Can backup only files not owned by rpm, or changed from rpm version
o Writes to tapes, on-disk archive files, or on-disk directory trees
o Keeps a table of contents so you know archives are on each tape
o Nice log files
