With Fog 0.32 - What is used to backup ext4 filesystems



    1. I was reading in another thread that fog was using partimage until 0.32 so it did not support ext4 filesystem.

    2. This was the first time I tried to upload an image using multi-part, multi-disk option.

    3. I have the following 4 disks(used space only) - 7G, 25G, 25G,13G (so total of 70G)

    4. Fog created the following:
      d1.mbr
      d1p1.img (921 bytes)
      d2.mbr
      d2p1.img (14G)
      d3.mbr
      d4.mbr

    5. I’m bit confused to why the image sizes are off…

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.



  • There’s more to this. So I decided:

    1. Forget about ext4 support, let me use the RAW disk option.

    2. so the image gets created however I’m not able to mount the image using
      mount -t ext4 -o loop mymyage… mymountpoint…

    3. However if I manually try to create a disk image using dd and try to mount the image it works fine.

    4. So the assumption here is the image created by fog is compressed - except not sure what format…Any help folks?



  • I’m an Idiot. I think after going through the forms now I understand . For some reason I assumed in version 0.32 Fog is able to image ext4. However it is only supported from 0.33 (which is still not out yet?)
