*** Linux users may skip the next two Warp-related paragraphs
Day two of Warp, and I see that, although it has many useful applets for
editing/wp/db/internet, there is nothing even half decent as far as bundled
backup software. (Hey, even DOS/Windows now come with good floppy
backup software, and any backup drive comes bundled with DOS/Win apps.)
I take it OS/2 and HPFS are so secure that making daily backups becomes
obsolete - Wow! ;-) [Sarcasm aside, I find it is such a shame so very few
people even consider backing up regularly, and that this task was
not considered sufficiently important. (Not as * as internet access?)]
Anyhow, I have a Colorado Jumbo 250 floppy-interface QIC-80 tape backup
drive. None of the included backup software runs under warp (I also read that,
even if it did, there would be problems with EA=Extended Attributes).
Hence, I am seeking appropriate software, particularly freeware. Please
suggest some, so that I no longer sweat from the fear of irrecoverably
wiping out files. (I am NOT going through another backup to HUNDREDS of
Under Linux (once I install it), it seems I can use ftape. Would this
same software properly back up HPFS partitions, including all Extended
Attributes and long filenames?
My thanks in advance for any response.
