DOS Backup/Restore

Not realy nice yet just quick and splashes of blood.

The scanning could be replaced with "binary scan".

Unix <> Dos path handling is nonexistent.

The DateTimes in the archive format are ignored.

Files are extracted to uppercase names.

Files split across multiple archive parts are patched together in the right way if one expands into an empty filepath.

Start with dumping all files from the disk set into the current directory.

The archive format description is taken from "Technical Documentation for FreeDOS Backup & Restore" [1 ]
