"BAR is backup archiver program to create compressed and encrypted archives of files that can be stored on a hard disk, CD, DVD, or directly on a server via FTP, SCP, or SFTP. A server mode and a scheduler are integrated for making automated backups in the background. A graphical front end that can connect to the (remote) server is included.

• can store and restore files and images
• can split archive files into pieces; each piece can be read independent
• compress of data with zlib, bzip2 or lzma algorithms
• encryption with gcrypt algrithms (AES, TWOFISH etc.)
• asymmetric encryption with RSA
• fast file format: can find and extract single files without decompressing/decryption of the whole archive
• direct copy of archives to remote computer via FTP or SSH (SCP or SFTP)
• can store archives on CD/DVD (with external tools)"
