partimage (backup system)

Partimage is opensource disk backup software. It saves partitions having
a supported filesystem on a sector basis to an image file. Although it
runs under Linux, Windows and most Linux filesystems are supported. The
image file can be compressed to save disk space and transfer time and
can be split into multiple files to be copied to CDs or DVDs.

Partimage has a textmode user interface, plus non-interactive batch
mode operation. It supports these filesystems: ext2, ext3, reiserfs,
fat16, fat32, hpfs, jfs, xfs, ufs, hfs, ntfs. It does NOT support ext4
or btrfs. Users needing a tool like this for ext4 or btrfs are advised
to try fsarchiver.

The daemon (partimaged) is included, but the SlackBuild author hasn't
tested it. Read /usr/doc/partimage-0.6.9/README.partimaged and proceed at
your own risk. One thing not mentioned there is that partimaged requires
a dedicated user account called partimag.
