According to http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC5Future is a back up feature considered, and I would like to suggest rsync http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/ for this with the following arguments rsync -avWHRx --delete --delete-excluded --log-format='%i %f %l' --exclude-from=$(HOME)/.rsync-exclude-list source destination # -a symbolic links, devices, attributes, permissions, ownerships etc are preserved and recursive dirs. # -v verbose # -R relative # -W whole files # -H presurve hardlinks # -x one file system # --delete delete files on dest side, that aren't on the src side # --delete-excluded also delete excluded files on receiver After such back up, can the partition be made bootable and boot. So exact is it.

Thanks - rsync is definitely an option, but it will ultimately be up to the person who takes on that project. One of the projects for the Google SummerOfCode is to create a per-user backup tool, so I imagine that will have some bearing on this project as well.
