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.
The following features have already been implemented in the current version:
-Support for basic file attributes (permissions, owner, ...)
-Support for multiple file-systems per archive
-Support for extended attributes (they are used by SELinux)
-Support the basic file-system attributes (label, uuid, block-size) for all
linux file-systems
-Support for ntfs filesystems (ability to create flexible clones of
windows partitions)
-Checksumming of everything which is written in the archive
(headers, data blocks, whole files)
-Ability to restore an archive which is corrupt (it will just skip the
current file)
-Multi-threaded lzo, gzip, bzip2, lzma compression: if you have a
dual-core / quad-core it will use all the power of your cpu
-Lzma compression (slow but very efficient algorithm) to make your
archive smaller.
-Support for splitting large archives into several files with a fixed
maximum size
-Encryption of the archive using a password. Based on blowfish from libcrypto
from openssl.
