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.

* I vote for moving this page back to its initial title (Full system backup with rsync) since it can't be merged with [[Rsync]].

I cannot move it back to the same title without admin intervention. They have to delete the redirect first. Sorry for changing the name in the first place; I didn't realize subsections worked only for user pages. [[User:Pwd|pwd]] 13:27, 23 December 2009 (EST)

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)
