Hello,
first of all: sorry i'm a newbye linux user;
and thanks for your open source work,
i have tryed to make a savefs for a WinVista partition,
my intention is to have a perfect copy of the filesystem for future restore of the OS completely upgraded;
My step:
run pclinuxOS live cd,
install Fsarchiver,
run this commands:
[[email protected] guest]# fsarchiver savefs -A /media/USBdrive40GB/backup/vista.fsa /dev/sda1

Statistics for filesystem 0
* files successfully processed:....regfiles=97115, directories=16226, symlinks=70, hardlinks=12910, specials=1
* files with errors:...............regfiles=5, directories=2, symlinks=0, hardlinks=0, specials=0
My question is: this error compromise all work? or wich is the correct command to make a perfect archive for future restoring of vista into the hard drive?
Unfortunely i cannot install linux distro on this laptop because the video driver Sis is really problematics to working well,
i have tryed but too much problems...:-(

Are you sure you are not using a quite old fsarchiver version ? You should really use the latest one (0.6.10) when you work with Windows filesystems since it's more complicated and it has more bugs.

You can get fsarchiver-0.6.10 on SystemRescueCd. If you are already using fsarchiver-0.6.10, it can be a real out of memory error. Check you have not use an extreme compression level (such as -z9 on a computer with a small amount of memory). Also what version of ntfs-3g are you using on that system ?

According to your first post, you have just used the default compression level (equivalent to -z3 when not specified).
You should really check both fsarchiver and ntfs-3g versions:

Code: Select all

fsarchiver -V
ntfs-3g -V

Ok, in pclos i have installed fsarchiver version 0.6.1 (2009-10-04) is too old?

support for ntfs file systems,

my laptop have:226.1mb of memory used of a total 1.7Gb

ntfs-3g 2010.1.16 external FUSE 28

compression default

i'm a toomuch newbye;

probably the best way is to try with rescueCD?

thanks.

fsarchiver version 0.6.1 is very old. A lot of bugs especially related to ntfs have been fixed in recent fsarchiver releases.
Please rerun it again from SystemRescueCd-1.5.6 (or the most recent SystemRescueCd-beta)
