I expect rsync does not recognise hard linked files as such and makes separate images of each directory link. Looking through /stand on my 4.8 system I see that this would create about 60Mb extra. You might do better with dump and restore: # cd /miiror/rootfs # dump -0 -a -f - / | restore -r -f - Malcolm _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
