Sounds like "/dev/sda1" is your live running system. It further appears that you are running fsarchiver on the live system "/dev/sda1" to backup the live system "/dev/sda1". The result, if you use the "-A" option, will be a "dirty" backup. In other words, the data will be changing as you are backing it up.If that does not trouble
I have a quick question about the "BackUp" application that comes with Ubuntu 12.04.
I managed to set up my computer the way I like it. Now, I'd like to create a backup of my file system partition. I've research a few backup options (such as fsarchiver, partimage), but if I'm not mistaken, in order to be able to use fsarchiver I have to run it from a live cd.
Yesterday night, May 19th, François Dupoux announced version 1.5.4 of the SystemRescueCd Linux-based operating system. The new SystemRescueCd 1.5.4 includes the alternative Linux kernel 2.6.33.04 (includes altker32 and altker64), and the standard 220.127.116.11 Linux kernel.

I did it recently and gparted, looking at it from a live cd, claimed that 2 partitions were both mounted as /.
I recently made my first android application, a live wallpaper, and I'm looking for some constructive criticism. I'm fairly new to Java itself and being inexperienced I lack the knowledge to know whether I've done a good job or not.
I have launched a nano suction NFC sticker project on kickstarter, "nfcTack and nfcPad". I would appreciate any criticism or advice on the project.
I've joined XDA forum to learn about rooting originally, and have been lurking for a while. Since reading more about NFC issues here I have decided to ask your readership for any expert criticism and suggestions.
I've been running Testing, and only ever had a couple of problems which were easily resolved via the forum. Before an upgrade I make a filesystem backup with fsarchiver, just in case something major happens and I need to restore my setup.I wouldn't consider it "drastic", since it has been very "stable" in my experience
