Re:

You are absolutely right, the fragmentation is different with fsarchiver because it's file based and not block based. fsarchiver has no control over the way the files are created, and there is nothing I can do to avoid that fragmentation unfortunately. I guess optimizations in ntfs-3g have to be do...

Report elapsed time

It would be great, if FSA would report total time after it is finished, and additionally log it in the fsa file for later access by archinfo.

Clone the hidden data between MBR and 1st partition ?

Does FSArchiver clone the hidden data between MBR and 1st partition ?

Some vendor put some hidden data in the space between MBR and 1st partition. e.g. IBM ThinkPad uses this for function key F11 to trigger the recovery action. Without this hidden data, F11 won't work.

See CloneZilla option -j2.
