using 7zip for backung up data instead of tar.gz files?
I run Centos 5.9 at home on my Linux server, and use Windows at work. As
backups are currently done as tar.gz files, instead for the backup
file format, could we have the backups done using 7-Zip, which is a file
archiver with a high compression ratio please?
For people that want to unpack their downloaded backup files on a
Windows or Linux machine this would solve the problem. Also I've heard
and experienced that tar does not always get the backups done correctly.
