I'm trying to find the definition of FreeBSD's DUMP/RESTORE file structure. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Google is determined to point me towards BSODs, core dumps, the man page for dump, etc, everything exept what I need.
I m currently running a live freebsd-12 VM with google cloud and I would like to move the image to another provider; is there a way to complete backup & restore the "Live Server" while it is running and restore it to another VM with another provider?
saw many articles about rsync...

I'm new to FreeBSD and have just installed a 12.1 release 32-bit version with Mate desktop, OpenOffice, Thunderbird and Firefox are all installed, and even the printer is working. So before I inevitably mess things up, I am looking for some pointers on how best to go about backing up the...
So there are several utilities in ports that provide convenient snapshot management, but I haven't been able to find one that would similarly automate cloning and managing those snapshots to a different drive/zfs pool installed in the same machine.
What I'm looking to have is not a clone of the...
I would like to migrate a virtual machine's filesystem onto a smaller virtual disk using dump.
I have tried both using the 12.1-RELEASE installer in live CD mode, and also attaching the disks to a separate VM running 12.0-RELEASE, but dump keeps failing on me with "unknown file system".
Today FreeBSD operating system turns 26 years old.

So I'm reading about ZFS on the FreeBSD ZFS quick-start guide, and I'm stuck at this part: when I attempt to use a device (/dev/da0), it throws an error and the device dissapears until I reboot. :\ Specifically, this: zpool create example/ dev/da0, and throws the error: cannot open '/dev/da0'...

I need an advise and correct direction to my problem. I am a new FreeBSD user. Our recent Windows 10 machine was hit by a Ransomware and it spread to other machines on Network also.
To protect that in future, I added a new HDD on the system and installed FreeBSD 12.0 x64 using HyperV on it...
I am implementing a backup solution for a small webserver. So far, the tools I plan to use:
I want to zfs send an archive of the latest webserver snapshots to another HDD, then sync to cloud (rclone). I am missing a replication tool that does:

I apologize if this question has already been asked before.
Is it possible to save a ZFS snapshot as a single file or directory somewhere for backup, and I ever need to "reinstall" FreeBSD, instantly restore my entire system using the install USB and ZFS?
I've made a lot of customizations and...

Looking to have a daily backup of my postgresql database on a server. It's on a LAN and I want to store the backups on a workstation volume. Should I induce the pg_dump on the FreeBSD server, or the Mac workstation? I'd like to learn how to do it from the server. I have file...

Not real good with scripting. But, I through my hat in the ring.
I was in dire need of a DB backup script that wrote to an inserted, but mostly unmounted rdx drive, regardless of mount situation. I also needed it to keep sanity in that backups older than 30 days needed to be pruned. Logs needed...
In preparation for moving to new hardware I am using dump to try to backup the entire OS, the problem is it appears to be skipping /usr/ even though that is not a separate mount point, which is fine as it is the documented behavior. The toruble is if I try to use dump to backup /usr, it tells me...
