Backup Question

Postby mauric » 2017-11-23 05:47

Hello

Please i will backup vmdk, vmx, and so .. i try with Dump, but dump will break after the files will change sizes or date, so with this iam on wrong way.
Backup posibilities exist with open files and application like, DD ?, rsynch ?, or exist here any other possibilities to make CLI VSS Backups.

Regards
M

Hello Head on a Stick

thanks for your post!, but if i understand rsync correct, this will copy the Data 1:1 from A->B but i think i need also
any oportunities to compress this files, than this files are "thin provisioned" and has a lot of air inside.

so for Example if my Image file has a size from 250Gb but only 20 % are used, rsync will copy the hole 250Gb.
its possible to do any compression like.

Code: Select all
-z, --compress              compress file data during the transfer
--compress-level=NUM    explicitly set compression level


if i understand this correct, this are only any compression rate about the transfer.

or exist here any addidtional help with tar, gzip, to compress this to any possible image.
rsync -syntax sourcefiles destinationfile | tar -c | for exampe to gz or iso

Btw, how did you lose your original question? :mrgreen:

please from witch original question ask me?

Thanks for your answer, i will appreciate any help!
regards

I entered the term "rsync backup with compression" into the search box at https://www.startpage.com/ and this link was top of the list:

My second comment was meant as a joke, please ignore it.
