Projects / rfs


rfs is a shell script for creating and updating a local spare system disk. The main goal is to recover a working system after a crash quickly. In this case, "quickly" means the time it takes to reboot the machine. rfs stands for "replication of filesystems". Like rsyncbackup, rfs is built on top of rsync.
