I am trying to use tar to backup my whole linux server to an external source.
The backup works fine but stops at 2 gig.
the command I use is
tar -zcvpf /mnt/backup/web.tar.gz \ --directory / ........then a bunch of excludes.
is there a way to split the tar backup into say 1.5 g chunks so that it does a complete backup? or is there another newer tar.
I'm using tar 1.15.91
