Next step: excludes.
In cloning my system I want to capture everything that is important if I
need to "rollback" to a clone, but I don't want to waste time with data
that is not needed.
For example, I might exclude anything within /tmp [?], /proc,
but not /dev, /etc, /var, /home (other than <usr>/tmp and known
fluff), /root and /opt.
Been googling around for more than over generalizations but have not
done so well yet :-)
Any comments, urls, etc would be appreciated.
PS: I'm well acquainted with HFS+ on my Mac, but stepping easy with ext3
