tar is distributed along with the scripts for performing backups
and restores. Even if there is a good chance those scripts may be
satisfying to you, they are not the only scripts or methods available for doing
backups and restore. You may well create your own, or use more
sophisticated packages dedicated to that purpose.
Some users are enthusiastic about
Amanda (The Advanced Maryland
Automatic Network Disk Archiver), a backup system developed by James
da Silva ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ and available on many Unix systems.
This is free software, and it is available from http://www.amanda.org.
This chapter documents both the provided shell scripts and
options which are more specific to usage as a backup tool.
To back up a file system means to create archives that contain all the files in that file system. Those archives can then be used to restore any or all of those files (for instance if a disk crashes or a file is accidentally deleted). File system backups are also called dumps.
