  Description     : incremental archiving tool to CD/DVD

sync2cd is an incremental archiving tool. It allows backing up
complete filesystem hierarchies to multiple backup media

changed files are stored during an archive operation.

All entity types are supported: directories, files, symlinks, named
pipes, sockets, block and character devices.  Ownership and
permissions can be saved and restored.

sync2cd does not use any archive formats (like dar or tar) or
compression: it just writes the files to CD.  This gives maximum
transparency on the archive media: you don't need sync2cd to restore
your data (although it helps), and the media contents can be easily
