File system back-up, deployment, and migration tool
FSArchiver saves the contents of a file system to a compressed archive file, and restores it to a different file system and/or partition. This partition can be of a different size than the original and FSArchiver will create a new file system if none exists.
All standard file attributes supported by the kernel are preserved, including file permissions, timestamps, symbolic and hard links, and extended attributes.
Each file in the archive is protected by a checksum. If part of the archive is corrupted you'll lose the affected file(s) but not the whole back-up.
