KDar is the KDE Disk Archiver. It is a convenient graphical interface to Denis Corbin's libdar archiving and backup C++ library. You can safely backup (with compression if you like), view and restore files using KDar, along with a few easy UNIX commands for mounting and burning CD-R's, Zip and Jazz drives, DVD-R's, floppies, or any other disk-based storage media.
KDar is also a convenient and safe way of archiving your images, sourcecode, emails, and configuration files. In addition, you can use an archive of your data as a reference for making incremental backups of that data.
KDar allows you to split the backup into slices whose size match the capacity of your storage media.
These screenshots might whet your appetite for trying KDar.
For a detailed description of KDar's features, and how to use KDar, consult the Documentation.
You may also want to check out Denis Corbin's dar command. It is perfect for restoring filesystems from an emergency boot disk and a set of CD-R's, or any other situation where you don't have access to X windows.
The KDar project was started by Johnathan K. Burchill, Ph.D., and it is hosted by SourceForge.net.
