I use incremental backup using
tar --create --file=/home/blueray/Documents/backup/dest/$(date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S).tar --listed-incremental=/home/blueray/Documents/backup/dest/usr.snar /home/blueray/Documents/backup/src
But the problem is,
it create too many
.tarfiles as i backup multiple times a day. For example
2021-11-23-23-34-43.tar. I am not understanding whether to merge or delete older tar files.
How will I extract the tar files with minimum effort (expected a single command).
Find a specific file to extract.
What can be the solution for this problem.
Is it even worth investing time in tar , given my requirements?
