4.4bsd dump and restore for ext2 filesystems

Package version:0.4b43-1

the filesystem unmounted, and see if that fixes the problem.

In theory, the page cache cha


Here is how to use these backup scripts:

2. Create the mount point for the partition as /backup (otherwise, modify the config parameters at the top of the scripts).

3. Mount the partition read-write, cd int
