bup is a backup and restore tool that uses tar to create archives.  The archives are
automatically named and split into 1GB chunks to accomodate any file system.  The archives
are optionally compressed using bzip2.  It is essentially another wrapper for tar,
which can be a pain when the backups are large.  I haven’t found one that is as easy to use
as this one (at least for me).  I do all my backups to a remote machine with a removeable
hard drive bay via NFS.
