    Command line backup tool for Linux. Easy to filter out unnecessary files and folders. If you know how find works makes it easier to understand. Using this feature can save a lot of diskspace for your incremental backups.

    I've been using this tool for years. I love the fact that it does NOT use a proprietary file format, and that I can extract files manually from the archive using just tar if I want to bypass the tool. The fact that it's a simple bash script is also a big plus.

    It gets the job done. Do backup tools need to do more?
