Running dump(8) and restore(8) would allow you to back up and restore your system. http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=dump http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=restore This is typically used with tape, although you can dump to disk as well. If your data/system is critical, you ought to already have some backup strategy you could restore the system from to your new RAID. If not, you might put one in place (RAID != backups). -- Darren Spruell [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
