Hello. I’m interested in store several files (about a few GB) in a BFS filesystem, to make use of the extended attributes.
At the same time, I also would like to have an easy way to made a backup of them (preserving the extended atributes). Until now, I use to zip them before copying to an external drive, or upload them to Dropbox.
I noticed the “diskimage” tool, that allow to create a virtual BFS filesystem on a file and mout it as a disk. I found interesting the posibility of use it like a BFS disk inside Haiku, and at the same time, the posibility of backup it under other filesystems preserving their atributes, without the need to create a zip file.
Anyone tried this before? There is some advice about my idea?
