rfs is a shell script for creating and updating a local spare system disk. rfs's 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.

The very first version of rfs was "sauver_sys.sh", a shell script written by Eric Gerbier http://eric.gerbier.free.fr . rfs stands for "replication of file systems".

rfs works on Gnu/Linux platforms and supports ext2/ext3 file systems. Targets are workstations as well as servers : your system remains fully-working while the backup is processed.

Requirements:

a backup disk : same size or bigger than the disk to clone
sed-3.95 or later
rsync 2.5.6 or later
lilo 5 or later

Usage:

To clone /dev/hda on /dev/hdb , become root and type :

rfs /dev/hda /dev/hdb

If your system disk crashes, put the target disk in place of the source one, and reboot.
