RE: Backup to CD-RW

Is there anything similar that will work with DVD+RWs?

Hi Jack,

apt-get install cdbackup

This will work with any archiver, so you can use GNU Tar's incremental
backup features to get what you want.  I've only used it a few times,
but I haven't encountered any real problems yet.  One minor gotcha: be
sure to insert the first CD *before* starting cdbackup.
