Copy 4tb files to 4 1tb disks on ubuntu

Hi,

Is there a way or a program on linux where i can specify that i want to copy about 4tb of data
and copy these files and folders over 4four or five external usb disks?

The scenario now is that i need to manually select about 1tb of files and folders and copy
these files and folders to the disk. Then change the usb disk and then select the next 1tb
and so on.

What i would like is a system that keeps track of what have been copied and just asks me to change the external disk when the disk is full, and when changed continues to copy the files.

You can use TAR to do this...
