   12 Description: low-maintenance backup/restore tool for mountable media
   13  backup2l [backup-too-l] is a tool for autonomously generating, maintaining
   14  and restoring backups on a mountable file system (e. g. hard disk). In a
   15  default installation, backups are created regularly by a cron script.
   16  .
   17  The main design goals are low maintenance effort, efficiency, transparency
   18  and robustness. All control files are stored together with the archives on
   19  the backup device, and their contents are mostly self-explaining. Hence, a
   20  user can - if necessary - browse the files and extract archives manually.
   21  .
   22  backup2l features differential backups at multiple hierarchical levels.
   23  This allows to generate small incremental backups at short intervals while
   24  at the same time, the total number of archives only increases
   25  logarithmically with the number of backups since the last full backup.
   26  .
   27  An open driver architecture allows to use virtually any archiving
   28  program as a backend. Built-in drivers support .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, or .afioz
   29  files. Further user-defined drivers can be added.
   30  .
   31  An integrated split-and-collect function allows to comfortably transfer all
   32  or selected archives to a set of CDs or other removable media.
