DaemonNews: "Backing up data is one of the most crucial tasks that any company must face when dealing with networks and servers. Many large companies rely on backup packages from vendors like Veritas and Computer
Associates, but not all of those packages are affordable for a company with a small network or will work with FreeBSD. Also, some companies will run into an interesting mix of Windows-based and
FreeBSD-based file servers and system administrators must figure out a way to backup both platforms. FreeBSD includes a very powerful backup utility with any installation, called tar."
