NAME
       amraw - Amanda Application open and read data

DESCRIPTION
       Amraw is an Amanda Application API script. It should not be run by users
       directly. It uses dd to backup and restore data.

       Amraw can backup only one directory entry, it can be a single file, a raw
       device, anything that amanda can open and read.

       The diskdevice in the disklist (DLE) must be the filename amraw open and
       read.

       Restore is done in place, an open is done and the data is written to it.
       A file owned by root and permission 0600 is create if the directory entry
       doesn't exist before the restore.

       Only full backup is allowed
