zpaq is a journaling archiver optimized for user-level incremental backup of directory trees. It supports 10 multi-threaded compression levels and file fragment level deduplication. It adds only files whose date has changed, and keeps both old and new versions. You can roll back the archive date to restore from old versions of the archive. The default compression level is faster than zip usually with better compression.
