       amraw - Amanda Application open and read data

       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
