I would like to backup all the files on my FreeBSD system to DVD-R.
Unfortunately, there isn't enough spare disk space to create a 4GB .iso
Does anyone know how I might:
tar up the contents of the disk to files < 2GB in size (the .iso file
and then burn these onto a DVD-R
all without creating temporary files?
I'd appreciate any thought on how to do this.
Otherwise, I have a USB 2 hard disk that I could use for scratch space.
Will that work under FreeBSD 4.6-RELEASE?
As a final alternative, would that USB hard disk work under Freesbie?
Would I be able to mount my existing hard disk slices?
