m ('your drives labels type' confuses me as labels aren't part of df -T output!)

I've reverted Cmrl's changes. Telling people to edit fstab twice is redundant, confusing, and generally a useless contribution to the article.
 
  
Additionally, separating the commands to multiple lines tended to fsck up the formatting. If you can find a way to do this whilst keeping it looking nice, I wouldn't mind.
 
 
Your simpler mkinitcpio command is decent, though. I've put that back in.

I've reverted Franzb's chagnes. A "specific" backup procedure is not necessary (and rude--let the user decide how they want to backup their data!). Instead, I included a link to the [[Backup programs]] article. The Partclone info you posted was split into [[Partclone|its own article]] and added to the list of [[Backup programs]].

it also says:
 
 
If you need to know your drives labels type the following:
 
 
df -T | awk '{print $1,$2,$NF}' | grep "^/dev"
 
 
I've tried this on several systems with no 'labels' shown even though I labeled the partitions. This does show their type, but not their labels. Perhaps that's what was meant by 'your drives labels type' and if so wouldn't 'your drives type' be less confusing since no labels are shown? Or is there a bug in lglive-0.9.7's version of Arch that makes it not work? If so it also doesn't work in Ubuntu 10 through 12. df -T doesn't show labels, only types (from man page df):
 
-T, --print-type              print file system type
