Re: write backup to cd or network

okay.... I just got around to trying it.... and it didn't work. I can't mount the device. The first thing I tried (after creating the mount point</laptop>) was: mount //192.168.0.4/mnt/entertainment/clones/IBM/2012-2-21 /laptop -o user=bmike1,group=workgroup to which it asked for a password and then...

Re: save over network

hmmmmmmm.... that didn't work. it copied 3% of the device and then: can't write to the archive file. space on device is 0 bytes. I ran out of room..... so it isn't piping the output to the laptop. what am I doing wrong? I really like fsarchiver because it copies the device and not what it is mounted...

Re: save over network

I think I should issue the command: fsarchiver -v -z9 -s700 savefs 2012-2-21 /dev/sda1 | ssh [email protected].168.0.4 /mnt/entertainment/clones/IBM/2012-2-21 in my eyes what this will do is use fsarchiver to save the contents of /dev/sda1 at a 'z'ip level of 9 (the maximum lzma compression) 's'plit into 700...

Re: save over network

ahhh haaaa.... after a more in depth analysis of the archive I see that it can be done. However my feeble mind doesn 't know how to do it. I could use tar but I want to use fsarchiver.

save over network

I'm using fsarchiver to backup a computer. I don't have enough diskspace for the archive. I can ssh to another computer. I know which directory I want to save it in but I don't know how to write the file directly to it. I tried it with a pipe and I tried it with a greater-than sign but that didn't w...

I want to clone my drive before I do this though because I got the system just perfect. So I D/L systemrescuecd and decide to use fsarchiver to d...
