#28 closed enhancement (fixed)

Do not restore partition option

Reported by: mmata@… Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: low Milestone: 2.2.9
Component: mondo Version: 2.0.8
Severity: minor Keywords:


Scenario : User has separate /home partition or alternate OS partitions (i.e Windows) which he does not want restored. He created mondo image of OS before performing major Linux OS upgrade (i.e debian apt-get dist-upgrade). Upgrade was failure so he wants to restore OS. He does not want Mondorestore to reformat /home partition or touch NTFS partition since they are fine.

Option like "do not format" in mondorestore partition EDIT screen would probably be best place for it.

For efficiency, mondoarchive should have option to retain record of partition location/size but not create image of partition. As NTFS backups are time consuming, no point creating them when user has no intention of restoring from them.

Milestone: 2.2.9
Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Using the option -E "/dev/ntfs" now will avoid touching that partition at restore time with upcoming 2.2.9
