Dump/restore utilities

This is the home page of the Linux Ext2 filesystem dump/restore utilities.

Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other storage medium. Subsequent incremental backups can then be layered on top of the full backup.

The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can restore a full backup of a filesystem. Single files and directory subtrees may also be restored from full or partial backups in interractive mode.

As of June 11, 2010, the latest version of dump/restore utilities is 0.4b43.

An experimental patch for dump-0.4b39 can be downloaded here which adds EA/ACL (Extended Attributes/Access Control Lists) support in both dump and restore. This patch has been included in mainstream starting with dump-0.4b40.

Dump is hosted by SummarySourceforge here and you can access its features below: Here are some dump-related links:
