Missing arc-type and scriptmode

Post by Sebastian » Thu Aug 24, 2006 1:31 pm


Im new to Linux and to Partimage. At the moment Im testing Partimage. At the moment it works fine with GUI. But I think about running it with one script.

Because I dont know much of it can you help me a little?

I have partitions

hda1 fat32
hda2 ntfs
hdb1 fat32
sda1 ntfs
sdb1 ext3

sdb is the disk where all the backups should be in.

Now I think about backing up all with one script. The first four partitions should be backed up. With Partitiontable!!
So now I tested a bit the different arc-types. For finding out what archiving is the best for me. Maybe I have two scripts at the end. One very fast, one with gzip and better packing. But I miss the third packing-program which is less than gzip. Its described in Doku but not in GUI.

Is there a template for such a batchscript? And can someone tell me how to build a batch in linux?

Thanks a lot!
