Please check the partimage manual. The link is at the top of this page.

Remember partimage is for saving and restoring entire partitions. Use other things to save/restore individual files. Partimage takes a snapshot of the entire partition, but you can't add incrementally to it; only make a new snapshot of the entire partition. Very useful for some purposes. Outside these parameters, other things are better.
