is a compact program. Even so, it achieves a
substantial level of functionality.
The key features may be summarized:
on RedHat distributions from RedHat 9 to current Enterprise / Centos,
and Fedora versions.
In those cases where a restore
set will not fit on a single CD / DVD, osarchiver
multiple CDs or DVDs.
If the computer being backed up
has multiple processors, osarchiver
will run faster, by using all of
the system's processors to compress the archive.
All available IDE and SCSI kernel module drivers are utilized
provide for the greatest flexibility in hardware. If the
computer had its system on a SCSI device, but the utilized target
system has an IDE drive, osarchiver
be able to deal with it.
If the source system has the appropriate kernel modules, so
it could, just as well, have been configured to run on the hardware of
the restore system, osarchiver
should build the restore system to a
state where it can be booted and further configured to accommodate that
