Re: Handling Windows 7 partitions?

thx for the response, dg12 -- very helpful. Following is what I have been doing with linux and plan to do w/win7 unless I learn otherwise. 1. My script runs nightly for data via rsync, but only triggers fsarchive once a week. Three saves are retained, after the forth, the oldest is deleted. I have t...

Handling Windows 7 partitions?

I have used fsarchiver nicely on multiboot linux machines, but now need to include some windows 7 machines. Linux is installed on each and they multi-boot. Windows 7 is installed with 2 partitions: a small (100-200 MB) boot/recovery one, and the main system "C" partition. With Ubuntu booted, I want ...

[Solved] Fsarchiver logging howto?

I saw the earlier post about using the -d option to log errors, but my script isn't working. Probably something obvious: # Variables fsalog=/var/log/backups/fsarchive.log kubL_DEST=/media/data-srv/backups/laptop/kublap/images fsarchiver -d $fsalog savefs $kubL_DEST/kublap_$Today.fsa /dev/sda2 This w...

Re: Is fsarchiver network capable?

After several weeks of using fsarchiver in a server script that employs a cifs mount, I can confirm that it works very well. My goal was to have a scriptable partition backup utility to replace partimage, and fsarchiver has done this to my satisfaction. So far I've tested restores to the same partit...

Re: Is fsarchiver network capable?

OK thx, that clarifies things. Older ubuntu distos do not have fsarchiver in their repo, so I installed the static binary to /usr/sbin/ but haven't tested it yet. I'm sure it will be fine. My planned server script will ssh to the client machine, run fsarchiver and then move the archive.fsa file to t...

Is fsarchiver network capable?

I have been using partimage for a couple of years to back up client linux OSs. I run it in my LAN from a server. The script I use can be run as a cron job, so coupled with ssh, partimage will back up remote clients in unattended mode. This works well on my multiboot linux machines. The booted client...
