Summary: Safe and flexible file-system backup/deployment tool
FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a
filesystem to a compressed archive file. The filesystem contents can be
restored on a device which has a different size and it can be restored on a
different filesystem. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the
filesystem when it extracts the data to devices. Everything is checksummed
in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive is corrupt, you
just lose the current file, not the whole archive.

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.
