Re: Need advice for best way to replace a faulty disk


> 1. Save partitions (/,/var,/home) on another box. Best way?

The approach that works best for me is to let tar pipe the data into
netcat, and stream it away over the network, as in

source# for i in / /home /var; do (cd $i && tar -czlf - | nc -w 5 -l -p 16333); done

target$ for i in root home var; do nc source 16333 >$i.tar.gz; sleep 5; done
