restoring all data from backup excluding an FS
« on: May 06, 2008, 09:42:42 PM »
i want to exclude /sys directory...would this command work? coz its seems that when the untarring is already in /sys, it is hanging. this is the command i used.

tar xvzPf /dev/st0 --exclude /sys

I m not sure wheather give exclude options with restoration or not

On thing more if you don't want to restore /sys , then its better to not to backed up at time of creation of tar file
tar -cvzf file.tar.gz / --exclude /sys
