Flexbackup is a flexible backup tool that works well for small to medium
sized tasks for which solutions like amanda are overkill.
It features:
* Easy configuration
* Uses afio, dump, GNU tar, cpio, star, pax, lha, or zip archivers
* Full and numbered levels of incremental backup (similar to "dump")
* Compression and buffering options for all backup types
* Handles remote filesystems with ssh/rsh; no special services required
* Writes to tapes, on-disk archive files, or on-disk directory trees
* Keeps a table of contents so you know what archives are on each tape
* Extensive logging options
