Hello all, first post here of a long-time FSArchiver user (thanks for this awesome tool!)
After setting up a home server and checking out that everything is working as expected I want to make sure I have a working backup of it to cover my back in the event something -anything- goes wrong, I expended a considerable time setting it up and I don't go to pass through all that hassle again!
So as the server will go headless -managed via ssh and X2Go- I'm checking out that live backup works as expected. For this I tried the following command:
# fsarchiver -dv -j5 -z6 -A savefs SYSBAK/2013-01-05_root /dev/sda1
which should work fine but alas FSArchiver kicks my butt with this error message:
"Creating logfile in /var/log/fsarchiver_2013-01-05_19-13-38_24324.log
Running fsarchiver version=[0.6.15], fileformat=[FsArCh_002]
oper_save.c#947,filesystem_mount_partition(): filesystem of partition [/dev/sda1] is not supported by fsarchiver: filesystem=
something totally unexpected since I manually did all the server's partitioning layout!
In the hope to get a better understanding of what can be making FSArchiver fail to recognize the partition filesystem I order it to probe the system:

My very question is: is there any way to force FSArchiver to treat a partition as a specific file system - for example by forcing it to ignore/bypass fs type check?
Any idea will be greatly appreciated!
