Clearly there are hundreds of better ways to back up a sparse file.

The point is that I sort of expected rdiff-backup to be as smart as tar and rsync in that perspective.

Its nice to be able to point a backup program at a system and have it work sanely and not break just because someone installed a piece of software that uses some wacky db library.

Over the years I have searched a number of times to find a better package that I can use but rdiff-backup keeps rising to the top of the heap.

Has any progress been made on getting rdiff-backup supported again?

I ran into a quirk with lack of support for spars files.
I have a system that has a file of 2TB for some database that only has a
few blocks of data in it.

What sort of database file is this? Maybe there is a better way to backup the database instead of doing a raw backup of that 2TB sparse file?
