Re: Regarding tar and split

Take a look at "rsnapshot". It uses "rsync --link-dest" and/or "cp - al" to do exactly what you like about "cp --backup=t". It maintains a series of snapshots of the filesystem with separate copies of changed files but only one copy of unchanged files.

rsnapshot overlays all that with a simple automatic way of pruning the older snapshots after they have aged appropriately.

You may like it.


PS: This has gotten a bit far afield from "tar and split"...

It doesn't appear from the man page that rsync has the equivalent of
cp --backup=t
