Regarding corrupted backups, does anyone use RAR with recovery volumes for
their backups? The recovery volumes store some redundant data from the main
.rar file which can be used to recover it if it becomes corrupted.
Recovery volumes should make backups on any medium more reliable. Has anyone
tried this? Can something similar be done with tarballs?
