FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a different file-system. The following features have already been implemented in the current version: -Support for basic file attributes (permissions, owner, ...) -Support for multiple file-systems per archive -Support for extended attributes (they are used by SELinux) -Support the basic file-system attributes (label, uuid, block-size) for all linux file-systems -Support for ntfs filesystems (ability to create flexible clones of windows partitions) -Checksumming of everything which is written in the archive (headers, data blocks, whole files) -Ability to restore an archive which is corrupt (it will just skip the current file) -Multi-threaded lzo, gzip, bzip2, lzma compression: if you have a dual-core / quad-core it will use all the power of your cpu -Lzma compression (slow but very efficient algorithm) to make your archive smaller. -Support for splitting large archives into several files with a fixed maximum size -Encryption of the archive using a password. Based on blowfish from libcrypto from openssl. NOTE: Use this package with care, it is a development version.
