I could have done something wrong but nevertheless "bug reports" seems to be the best topic to post this under, since I know well how to use the program and it's installed already.
I routinely use SysrescueCD to back up ext4 partitions; it's great. Having mounted the remote (NFS) file system I issue a command (on a quad-core CPU) of the form
Code: Select all
fsarchiver -j4 -v savefs /mnt/images/hostname/20130501/20130501.fsa /dev/sda5
I recently upgraded my SysrescueCD so that I'm now using fsarchiver 0.6.15; the savefs is extremely slow. I don't know how long it would take to dump 170GB (approx) because I've never allowed it to get beyond 30%, which takes over two hours. The earlier version of SysrescueCD has fsarchiver 0.6.8 and it backs up the 170GB partition in about twenty minutes.
Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? Can someone suggest a workround? I much prefer other aspects of the later release of SysrescueCD.
