And I'm happy to use tar when I follow up with an rsync
to clean things up.
I like my hardlinks and IIRC, tar doesn't notice them. Dump does.
As I say, get them over, run an "rsync -avH --delete /part/ remote:/new/part/"
and you'll match them really well.
Also, an AIT or other fast tape may be faster than network :)
pmax machine don't do more than a 10baseT.
