Smalltarbkp v2.0

I have updated the smalltarbkp script that is freely available for download @ sourceforge due to a recent update in the openssl encryption tool.

While the script will attempt to work with the legacy syntax of the in case the new syntax fails it is important to notice.

All new backups will be encrypted with the new syntax as recommend by openssl.

To decrypt the exiting legacy backups it will use the legacy method and obviously anything newly backed up will use the new standard syntax.

Example:

decrypt: openssl aes-256-cbc -d -a -pbkdf2 -in .enc -out -pass pass: xxxxx
legacy: openssl enc -d -aes-256-cbc -in .enc -out -pass pass: xxxx

I will continue to develop any changes and update any issues as I actively use the script for my own Linux backups at home.

Any issues let me know here or at Twitter: @gcclinux
