Carlos, I think you're getting ridiculous in your defence of that position,
ignoring that modern compress uses CRC which is correctable and is not a mere
checksum, and throwing up irrelevancies that have nothing to do with this

I deny that gzip uses CRC to correct errors.

All of this is quite irrelevant to you original stated objective of backing
up a
hard drive before a clean install.

targz was mentioned as a possibility, and I contend that no. Simple as that.

Of course I would use other methods. I'm aware of them.
