Flatback is an easy to use filesystem archiver. It supports largefiles, per-file compression, per-file checksumming, and uses a simple binary format.

Planned features include resplitting the archive, incremental backups, more robust error handling, and support for extended file attributes.

I have no future plans for flatback at this time.

Someone is welcome to pick up where I left off. Contact me if you are interested.

The first release of flatback is out.

Flatback is a simple filesystem archiver. With it you can back up an entire root filesystem, including the /dev device inodes. I have tried afio, dar, and star but they did not fill my needs. So I wrote flatback.

Flatback is alpha software and cannot yet restore an archive that it creates.
