The handbook describes how to restore a system backup made by
tape dumps (using dump) of the file systems after a disaster. I
assumed that applies to the same disk or a direct replacement.
Or is it possible to use a quite different size and possibly
even different interface. Replace an IDE with SCSI for instance.
Providingi, of course that the disks are partitioned (Unix) in
the same way, although of a different size.
A tar backup would be OK, even with a different partition scheme.
However does (g)tar backup device files, even those large minor
no's now in FreeBSD?
Just a bit confused on backup policy. Since all my experiance has
been with Interactive SVR3 and 3rd party backup software. Don't
all laugh :-)
