    You want to archive your home directory to a SCSI tape drive using the tar utility. You want to issue the command for create, verbose which gives a detailed list of each file backed up and file which can either be the name of the device file or the standard file. To save space, you also want to compress the data. Of the options below, select the correct command that will accomplish your task. Choose only one answer.

    1. tar -cCvf /dev/st0 /home
    2. tar -ckvf /dev/st0 /home
    3. tar -cxvf /dev/st0 /home
    4. tar -cXvf /dev/st0 /home
    5. tar -czvf /dev/st0 /home
    6. tar -cuvf /dev/st0 /home

    Answer later.

    Answer time. AJ is correct. The answer is 5. The switches -cvf are easily understood to stand for create, verbose and file. The -z option will compress the backup.
