    --exclude=/media doesn't exclude /media... any ideas?

    The solution is in my last post this thread on page 21! That is, it worked for me; I was able to back up excluding media.

    Well, I sure wish I could rant and boast about it telling you...you know,man...I did this and you just have to that because of this ant that!!
    with tons of codes!!!

    The fact is it's sheer luck!! For some reason, I did a typo (/) at the end of the line!=D>
    Let me know how it went. Oh boy, about the codes, maybe in a couple of decades!! Good luck.

    one small tip, plz empty your trash folders, i forgot to do mine, and it had a 200 mb home video, so wasted that much space and time.

    Your car, your router, your watch, your search engine, your tv, 80% of super-computers and maybe even your toilet seat uses LINUX, so stop shouting about why isn't it popular, if you can't see it that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    I want to write the backups to DVD using cdbackup. I also want to do use tar's incremental backup feature to save storage space? Will this work?

    That was very impressive! Very fast!

    For some reason it didn't back /var even though I didn't exclude it?

    I unmounted my windows drives by typing
    #
    in front of their entry in fstab and rebooting.

    I excluded /tmp because it seemed to have my windows drive in it in a folder
    gconfd-dennisx

    Was that ok – or will it make the restore go bad if I ever have to?

    It is just a matter of tar's version 8)

    Maybe we should just ask the first poster to edit his post.. people just keep asking that

    Re: Howto: Backup and restore your system!

    I've just backed up and wondering if the file size is right because it seems small, my used space is around about 8Gb and my backup in .tgz is 2.1 GB I didn't see any errors but it seems small, is it just compressed really well or is something probably wrong?
