I can't speak for Macs but afaik there is no way to do a full drive
restore using Dirvish / Rsync. Reason being is that newer versions of
windows have virtual file's that don't exist themselves but are stored
elsewhere in places you don't see. Futhermore I can't see of a way to
'copy' the files back to an NTFS medium.
You could probably do this with Windows 95/NT (on FAT16), possibly
Windows 98 & ME, but I don't think you could do it in 2000, or XP or

Subject: [Dirvish] Article on Dirvish in Sys Admin magazine
I wrote a three part article on dirvish for Sys Admin magazine. The
first part is available now, at:
Note, in the second part of the article in the February issue, I will be
talking about the old way of installing Dirvish. We are talking about
changing the install procedure on the list right now.
I am still working on the third part, which discusses restores. I am
still missing a good discussion of restoring files or whole drives for
Macs and Windows. Principally because I don't have a Mac or a Windows
machine. Anyone have suggestions or contributions?
