'scdbackup' is a simplified CD/DVD backup program for GNU/Linux. It backs up large amounts of data with no special tools needed for reading the backup. It supports ISO9660 filesystems and afio archives. Its special features are automatic division of data into multiple volumes, verification of write success, and incremental backups. An information script on each volume tells where a certain file may be found. CDs get written via cdrecord; DVDs get written via growisofs.
