Page title does not use [[ArchWiki_Tutorial_(English)#Adding_a_new_page|naming guidelines]].  Also, a forward slash between two words defines an either/or option (e.g. Backup for full/partial configurations) which I don't think is meant to be the case here.
+
Why the -H option is not added?
 +
I've done a quick search in my arch system and there are a lot of hard link in the /usr/share folders.
 +
Moreover should the -delet option be added to in order to be sure that the cloned system contains all and only the files which are present in the original one?
 +
Thank you,

:The slash was supposed to be a subpage. It looks like that's disabled in this wiki for article namespace (as it is in Wikipedia) so I'll just change it. [[User:Time|Time]] 07:05, 12 December 2009 (EST)

Ok, I started this page, so I'm biased. It used to be clearly written, with an easy to understand example on how to use rsync and its exclude format. Now it's a one liner with the excludes mashed together and most of the page is dedicated to setting up your fstab. Why?

Thanks [[User:Time]] for taking the time to rewrite this :) It looks good and it's more generic now, also thanks for keeping the link to the original forum post.
+
 
+
Just to clarify things: from what i understand this page can't be merged to the Rsync page because of technical limitations so it's being moved back to ''Full System Backup with rsync''? It's fine by me either way, as long as it still stays somewhere on the wiki :)

Thanks! Neat method for a sync-type backup! The only question I have is what happens if you {{Codeline|dd}} the boot sector (first 512 bytes) instead of running GRUB? --[[User:VitaminJ|VitaminJ]] 22:18, 11 November 2009 (EST)

I don't know if it works with <code>dd</code>, since the partitioning scheme can be different on the two harddrives.
+
 
+
* I vote for merging this with [[rsync]].
+
* I second the vote.

What about hard links and delete options

Why the -H option is not added? I've done a quick search in my arch system and there are a lot of hard link in the /usr/share folders. Moreover should the -delet option be added to in order to be sure that the cloned system contains all and only the files which are present in the original one? Thank you, Xwang

-'H' and '-delete' info added. Closing. -- Karol (talk) 22:32, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
