Flatback is a simple filesystem archiver. It was created to address limitations in afio, star, and dar.

Notable features include checksumming, large file support, support for hardlinks, and support for device files.

Planned features include incremental backups, robust error handling, and extended file attributes.

Here are some key features of "Flatback":

Largefile support
Multivolume support
Smart Per-File compression
Per-File metadata checksumming (SHA1)
Per-File data checksumming (SHA1) when data is present
Format allows restoring of damaged archives even when compression is enabled
Simple, space efficent, binary format
Handles hardlinks the right way

Limitations:

Restoring archives not implemented yet
Incremental backups not implemented yet
Aborts on recoverable errors (will fix later)
Not extensively tested
