sparse when creating backup
« on: August 25, 2009, 11:58:53 AM »
is it possible to create a backup (mydata.tar.gz) with the sparse option file.
For example mldonkey create a file when u start a download but the file created isn't in real big as when is finished.
Infact if I want to move the mldonkey temp dir I should use
Code: [Select]
rsync -avS SOURCE DEST
dCore user

Busybox tar doesn't support the -S option. Things should work with GNU tar, but might need a remaster.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
