Can't restore archived partitions

Post by Demontager » Wed Jan 19, 2011 5:00 am

I got problem with restoring archived images. I know this problem (found developers notation in BUGS), but if it not work for me, when it work?
* partimage doesn't rightly detect end of space so corrupts images maid with
compression. Image seems correct but restoring fails with 'invalid magic'.
This doesn't affect non compressed images nor multivolume images based on
size spliting.
If i do not use archiving than I can restore partition from image.


ps partimage- 0.6.9

Not sure what happened in your case. Partimage is not under active development, so existing bugs and limitations will not be fixed. That said, partimage still works fine within its limits -- read the manual for these. Compression works and images can be created and restored for several filesystems including ext3. I don't exactly know what you meant by "archiving." If you are still having problems, can you explain that further?
