Backup utility

Tart (Tar Archive and Recovery Tool) is a small and simple backup and recovery utility designed for single-user/small systems. It performs incremental (differential) backups, full backups, and helps restore these files. Tart works on a cyclical incremental backup model: it does a full backup the first time you run it, then does incremental backups for a specified number of cycles, after which it does another full backup.
