I've recently discovered cpdup on another UFS formatted HDD for this job. Until now, works good. I just prefer dump + restore for "cloning" systems because it explicitely takes care of file attributes and anything; I do use it usually from hard disk to hard disk, not via storage media (backup set). -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
