I have to write a script to tar and transfer about 20GB amount of data... I was planing to use the multi volume option in tar to create series of 1GB files and transfer individually. I can run the following command but it wait for user input to create the next (disk2.tar) file. How can I automate this to just create all the disk(n).tar files without user interaction.
tar -cM --tape-length=1024000 --file=disk1.tar backup.tar
