The question kind of says it all. When archiving files with Winrar you get the option of different compression modes, one of which is "store".
I'm under the impression this does no actual compression but instead just groups all the selected files into a single file.
Is this the same as "tarring" on a linux?
We do we semi-daily "backups" of two directories, which contain between 5 and 10 files each, which a total file size of approx 40gb for the two directories combined. We configure the archive to be split into 2gb files. We do this because windows does not allows us to copy files larger than 2gb on to an external usb drive. This takes about 30mins on out quad core machine with 4gb of ram.
Is there a faster way of doing what we are trying to do?
