14.2 > System > dump (0.4b46)

Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to
be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or
other storage medium. Subsequent incremental backups can then be
layered on top of the full backup.

The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can
restore a full backup of a filesystem. Single files and directory
subtrees may also be restored from full or partial backups in
interactive mode.

You might want to read this post by Linus:
and the counter-argument on:

Slackware's tar package already has rmt, therefore this SlackBuild
excludes it.

This SlackBuild disables the SELinux functionality and dependency.

Note that Slackware comes with another "restore" command:
/usr/sbin/restore The package built by this SlackBuild however will
install: /sbin/restore Thus you might need to call the dump package
restore by its full path.
