encryption and volume split of folder backups
is anyone doing encrypted backups of folders or files, and splitting the backup into volumes?
Tar (or the file system?) seems to have a limit at 8GB (too big to be practical anyway, I prefer chunks of 700MB or 2048MB), and using it with encryption I haven't tried to figure out yet
p7zip does not store Unix file access rights by itself, so it needs piping from tar, but then you run into a limit on the path name of 256 characters (try saving a webpage): "tar: File name too long for ustar "
I'm trying all this on a box with OpenBSD 4.5 i386, but I've got 2 boxes with 4.6 to play with too.
I use the RAR package on my old OpenBSD 3.9 fileservers, but i's time to install 4.6 on them, me thinks
Any thoughts are appreciated.
