hi all,

I would like very much a plugin for DAR (Disk Archive, http://dar.linux.free.fr) in TC.

Would it be much work? IMHO it certainly would be worth it.

I've been using 'dar' for about 2 years to backup a few servers (both windows and Linux. It's great for big stuff (splits in volumes) and the fastest I've found for millions of files...

To restore parts of such a big backup, I use 'kdar' (for KDE only).
Unfortunately, kdar crashes often during restore of big folders.

Any comments are welcome!
Stefan

Hello

I am interested in helping to develop the plugin. I have already looked into the possibility of using command line dar to pipe the data into totalcmd but it does not work. The documentation of the dar archive format is rather limited so it would probably had to be figured out from the source and that's a bit of work Smile
Contact me on my mail (link is hopefully below this msg Razz)

I have basic dar browsing done already Cool
Found some pretty nice documentation so it wasn't that hard. I'll try to post a test version in a few days. Stay tuned Very Happy

Alright....the first version is available Cool Cool

The plugin should open uncompressed or bzip2 compressed dar files (g/zip not supported yet, sorry). There is no support for slicing (single slice archives only) and no encryption. There is of course also no support for creating dars, use command line tool for that (I might add an option to call command line dar from the plug-in to create dars in the future).

Comments welcome Very Happy
