Disk ARchive (Backup and Restore) using dar and kdar(dar Frontend)

Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Ubuntugeek has a guide of how to use it.
Its features include splitting archives over several files, CDs, ZIPs, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links and extended attributes, remote backup using pipes and external command (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the “slices” of an existing archive. It can now run commands between slices, encrypt archives, and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Dar also has external GUI like kdar for Linux,thanks to the well documented API.
