Awesome @mk01, I didn't know about sending and receiving snapshots.

I have used netcat and dd to clone a disk over the network and it worked a treat.

fs2:/dev/sda2 will clone to sda2 and use fs2 filesystem, ext4:/dev/sda2 will use ext4 - XBian is completely universal in system setting files - no other changes are needed - only cmdline.txt of course)


i am not quite sure what do you mean by "re-clone with xbian-config" could you please explain a bit? I've ended up in that "blue" Confing screen where the 6th option is "Xbian copier" unfortunately when i use that i get error "can't prepare destination filesystem". Or did i miss something and there is another way?

I'd like to have the second partition on ext4 instead on btrfs due to a multiboot environment.

Source: /dev/mmcblk0p2
Destination: ext4:/dev/sda2

Note: /dev/sda2 is a second partiiton on my USB disk and it is a linux partition

Thank you in advance for your reply

//EDIT: Ok i figured it out. It needs to be unmounted first. Then it works Big Grin
