    120gb Backup

    Can I use this to back-up my 120Gb with bash?

    mfsbackup -f 4138 -6so

    Also what does the extra parameters represent?

    -f N

    When making the backup, include ALL streams (Videos) whos fsid is below N. Most TiVos only require certain recordings for background animations. Since these are so large, they are not included in software updates. As a result, they all have very low fsids. On TiVos that I have seen, this is below 2000. In fact, 2000 is the default for this option.
