Restoring archive to different filesystem, mkfs options..

Post by tuipveus » Wed Jun 20, 2012 9:59 am

I would like to restore my backup to new harddisks and make new filesystem (ext4) on raid. Is there any way to specify parameters to mkfs from fsarchver commandline?
for example:
mkfs.ext3 -b 4096 -E stride=64,stripe-width=128

Is it just possible to skip fsarchiver from generating filesystem and restore the files as they are in archive, similar to tar, without taking another backup with savedir-option ? I can make filesystem by my self.
