Fedora Update Notification
2009-07-15 19:58:33

Name        : fsarchiver
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 0.5.8
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.fsarchiver.org
Summary     : Safe and flexible file-system backup/deployment tool
Description :
FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a
file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored
on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a
different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the
file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is
checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive
is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.

Update Information:

Update to a new upstream release:    - Preserve UUID with ntfs filesystems
(64bit number written in boot sector at offset 0x48)   - Fixed "fsarchiver
probe": partitions having a 0 at the end of their number were ignored   - Using
md5.c from coreutils-6.9 to avoid a licensing issue (this one is under GPL-v2)
- Added detection of partitions with no known filesystem in "fsarchive probe"
