Saved archive with 6.18, 6.18 would not restore. Was able to restore with 6.17. Code below. This was with 3.2.x and 3.4.x kernels.

UUID

If you backup a partition, then restore it to two other partitions all three will have the same UUID and will not mount with each other or to a network correctly I think. Any way to change the UUID using fsarchiver ? Possible feature request if easily could be done with an option selection. thx Patr...

Re: Use existing filesystem, do not create a new one

I don't think there is a "filesystem archiver" that does partitions or whole directories and
selects one file to restore. Perhaps a basic archiver that compresses a basic directory
backup into a compressed file, without concern for preserving the filesystem, will do that.

Re: Symlink problems when restoring Win7 Prof archive

Sorry for my late reply, I was quite busy the last couple of days. Thanks patrick013 for sharing your experience. I think you might be right about the symbolic links in Windows and Linux oriented image software. Nevertheless I thought it might be worth to give another Linux package a try. Therefore...

Re: Symlink problems when restoring Win7 Prof archive

I don't think fsarchiver or any LINUX oriented program can do Windows symbolic links which are usually disconnected. Had this problem with XP and .NET Framework backup which had symbolic links in .NET Framework. Have used fsarchiver for portable drive to portable drive and restore back with LINUX op...
