Re: Good. Now all we need in Windows NTBackup ported to Windows 7

it would be nicer if the Cygwin tar program could be used directly

bad side is how windows does its drivers. I doubt any attempt to embed Linux shells within Win-10-nic will fix *THAT*.

/me wonders if using xzip with tar + tape will give you better compression than 2.5:1 on most things... [I've never actually tried that, just created 'txz' tarballs which are compressed VERY well!]
