Backup Method .

Hii ,
  I am using Linux 7.1 with DLT tape attached to my box . I would like to know a good backup method . Is there any free graphical backup utility . I know about TAR and CPIO but the options in it r a bit confusing . Can any one explain how to do fast and reliable backup and restore .

Thanks

Anup

If you want a GUI backup tool you might consider Arkeai Light, which is free for non-commercial use on a single system (see http://www.arkeia.com).

From a commandline or script I'd recommend dump over tar or cpio. Partly because it was designed to be a file system backup tool and partly because it supports interactive restores. The man page for dump will probably be illuminating.

Or you can have a check here http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/Linux-Complete-Backup-and-Recovery-HOWTO/, which included arkeia as jlevie suggested, and Amanda, which can control DTL8000 drive.
