For what it's worth, I *like* a gui for the backup and restore. Kdar's
works well for me. I also like the basic underlying function of dar
that write the data into "slices" of user-defined size. My 320g hard
drive backs up into 20+ 4g slices on my external hard drive. These
could, if I wanted, be burned out to DVDs for more permanent storage.
But it's not the backup, it's the restore that's important. Kdar's gui
makes it a piece of cake to restore a file or folder, in the same place
or to a new place, whatever you need.
