PAX archive file size limit
I am backing up my files using PAX to a hard disk, using a script. When the archive file size reaches 2GB, PAX is asking for another file name. The interactive message it is giving is "Pax arhvive volume change required. Ready for volume #2. Input archive name or '.' to quit".
The script waits for some time and move on to the next PAX command to archive the next backup. The result is that the previous archive is not complete and hence the archive is not usable.
1. How can I overcome this limit of 2GB?
2. Or as an alternative, how can I specify the name for the archive volume#2, in a script?
Any help will be appreciated.
