Fedora Update Notification

Name        : fsarchiver
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 0.6.17
Release     : 1.fc18
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 new upstream version 0.6.17:

It contains a fix to make it detect read-write mounted filesystems when systemd is used, as fsarchiver-0.6.16 would accept to save a read-write mounted partition without any warning:

It also contains a trivial contributed feature enhancement to specify advanced mkfs options with restfs:
fsarchiver restfs myarchive.fsa
id=0,dest=/dev/sda1,mkfs=ext4,mkfsopt="-I 256"
