License : GPL
Afio makes cpio-format archives and is a better replacement for tar.
Afio manipulates groups of files, copying them within or between
filesystems and an afio archive. Afio archives are portable as they
contain only ASCII-formatted header information. Afio deals somewhat
gracefully with input data corruption: with tar <compress option>,
you're likely lose the whole archive past the first corruption. Afio
compresses each file, rather than creating a single big backup. Afio
supports multi-volume archives during interactive operation.
