I want to divide a directory into a no. of archives with tar.
For example I have a big directory 'mydir'. I want to make 5 archives mydir1.tar, mydir2.tar, ... mydir5.tar from my big directory ‘mydir’.
Eventually I would like to have a text file with the content of every archive (filename and date).
How can I do that? I didn’t find any tar option which could help me.
