Suggestions

Page title does not use 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.

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. Time 07:05, 12 December 2009 (EST)
Full System Backup with rsync? If not, go ahead and change it. Time 07:14, 12 December 2009 (EST)
Just got a chance to read the article, nice work.

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.

Restore title

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. pwd 13:27, 23 December 2009 (EST)

Oops! Sorry; didn't realize that was the cause of the hold-up. I've removed the redirect. -- pointone 13:34, 23 December 2009 (EST)
Moved the page even though I don't like the title. I really don't think the naming scheme suits it; should be Full system backup with rsync, in my opinion. pwd 14:10, 23 December 2009 (EST)

Comments

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


I don't know if it works with dd, since the partitioning scheme can be different on the two harddrives.

  • I vote for merging this with rsync.
  • I second the vote.
