Dumping a live filesystem is, but having soft upates active on the filesystem does not make things significantly worse than they would have been anyway. > After that i vas quet surprised because it ate 16 Gigs of / but du\df cant > show anything about.

Is it possible that your dump went to /dev/rmt because you failed to supply an alternative destination? -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
