The zpaqfranz app is is an advanced archiver with deduplication and versioning. It keeps forever-to-ever copies of files, making it ideal for virtual machine backup and freezing zfs snapshots.

It can handle millions of files and TBs of data, and allows rsync backups to the cloud with minimal data transfer. It also offers high possibilities of data verification and supports multithread acceleration on SSD/NVMe.

In the nutshell, it is a versatile backup and disaster recovery tool, similar to 7z or RAR but with enhanced capabilities, including deduplicated "snapshots" (versions). It is conceptually similar to the Mac Time Machine, but more efficient. This is a fork of zpaq 7.15.

Platforms

It is available for Windows, Linux, Free/OpenBSD, Solaris, and MacOS.
