Using Tar for Tape Drive BSD

We needed to set up a backup using tar on a unix BSD system. Here is how we did it:

Backing up the current directory to Tape:

$ tar cv . <- default tape drive (rsa0)

$ tar cvf /dev/rsa1 . <- second tape drive (rsa1)

Restore files from Tape:

$ tar xv .
$ tar xvf /dev/rsa1
