The memory requirement is proportional to the

number of files not to the amount of data to be saved.

memory hungry
if you have thousands files and a lot GB's, read first

about memory usage.

I can recommend DAR. I have some helper scripts for it at http://www.sliqware.ndo.co.uk/

Works well with SSH and Cygwin
I use dar to perform remote network backups of a hosted linux server to a local Windows machine using the windows build of dar under cygwin. It works great. Wonderfull application.

Nice job on version2
Hi, I must compliment you on version 2 of dar. The documentation is much better organized and easier to
understand.

great tool for backing up to cdr
To anyone looking for a way to get around tar's limitation of not handling compressed multi-volumes: dar is the answer. It even comes
with a static version so you can restore from scratch.
Very nice features. I can't wait for the gui frontend. :-)
