That is true, but the result is not as reliable or robust as an application
designed from start to create backup compressed images. It can add forward
recovery data that serves to recover from media errors (and have into
account the size of that media).

I don't know anything in Linux with that capability.

parchive, which stores data redundantly with enough checksum information so
that lost files may be recovered, if there aren't too many lost

What non-linux tools with that capability are you referring to?
