Backup question

The problem: I have a 200GB DOS\07 volume I want to backup to an SMB shared FAT32 volume.
The solution : Lha to shared volume (file flags & comments preserved to a strange FS).

Unsolvable issues :
1. How do you split the .lha to multiple volumes ( v2.15 seems problematic) ?
2. How do you exclude directories from om archive (e.g. Trashcan)? -W Exclude filenames seems also broken.

Solution:
1) lha your data to a local HDD (if it takes that much into one lha file, that is)
2) "Sploin" them to smaller chunks
3) Copy them over

The easiest way is to create a temporary drawer on the source volume and move eveything you want to backup into it. Then use:

lha a -3reFV1073741824 dest:archive.lha source:temp/

-3 = Use -lh6- compression
-r = recursive
-e = archive empty directories
-F = Use fast progress display
-V = Enable/set multivolume size(KB)

this should give you upto 200 archive files of 1GB each.
