[CANCELED] Impossible to excude file during savefs with ntfs

Post by olivierb2 » Wed Feb 19, 2014 4:08 pm

Hello,

I'm trying actually to savefs a ntfs (Windows 7) partition by excluding some files from the archive. I use the following command :

Code: Select all

fsarchiver -j 4 -s 1900 -e 'Softwares.vhd' savefs image.fsa /dev/sda3
But unfortunately, the file Softwares.vhd is saved anyway. I tried some jocker like 'Softwares.*' but still same result.

Is there any limitation with the ntfs and exclude argument or is that I found a bug?

Thanks for the answer.

Olivier.

Have you tried to put

Code: Select all

-e 'Softwares.vhd'
at the end of the command line?
I'm not sure if it works in your case, but the man page EXAMPLES shows the arguments order.

I just made a test, and it seems that the file is included in the archive anyway. Any other idea that I can try to test?

Thanks.

Sorry, after some trials is seems it's working. I was cheated by the size of the image.

Thanks again for the answer.
