I need to backup a fairly large directory, but I am limited by the size of individual files. I'd like to essentially create a
tar.(gz|bz2) archive which is split into 200MB maximum archives. Clonezilla does something similar to this by splitting image backups named like so:
sda1.backup.tar.gz.aa sda1.backup.tar.gz.ab sda1.backup.tar.gz.ac
Is there a way I can do this in one command? I understand how to use the
split command, but I'd like to not have to create one giant archive, then split it into smaller archives, as this would double the disk space I'd need in order to initially create the archive.
