hi,

might this command work for a full system backup? ive seen the name "stage4" used for this.
there are quite some backup solutions, even in the forums but they are a bit overkill in my case.


find . -path './dev' -prune -o -path './media' -prune -o -path './mnt' -prune -o -path './proc' -prune -o -path './sys' -prune -o -print |tar --preserve-permissions --create --absolute-names --totals --ignore-failed-read --file systembackup.tar -


greets
metalfan
