Tapeback

http://www.rongage.org/tapeback
'Tapeback' backs up various parts of a GNU/Linux system. It can back up to a single tape or have a backup span multiple tapes. Its backups are fully self-contained; no "database" is needed to restore a backup. Restore point redirection is simple and can be accomplished without complex editing of config files or entering complex commands. The package also includes a small kernel patch to facilitate real-time detection of "drive ready" status. This patch lets 'tapeback' autodetect when a tape is switched in the drive (when end of tape is hit during backup/restore).
