14.2. The Filesystem Backup Module

This module allows you to backup directories on your local filesystems, either on demand or on a fixed schedule. The appropriate command for the filesystem type being backed up is used—for example, xfsdump on xfs filesystems or dump on ext2 or ext3. The module also supports the restoration of backups, either to their original location or to a different path.

When you enter the module from the System category, the main page will display all backups that you currently have configured, as shown in Figure 14.1. Of course, if this is the first time you have used the module there will be none to display.
