You can make 1-hours backup (forever) in not much more than 300KB with zpaq/zpaqfranzSee what [cmd=""]ifconfig[/cmd] says to get an idea about your network settings, use top(1) in verbose mode or try lots of ps(1) flags to poke around ([red]-aux[/red] is pretty comprehensive) and see what daemons are running. I have a few optional daemons like nfsd, sshd, ntpd, mountd, & powerd here, yours may vary.
Good luck. Once every few days I create a bzipped tar of /etc/, so I don't have to worry about accidental deletions like that. It takes up all of about 300k (/usr/local/bin/7z gets it down to 258k, which is hardly worth the hassle). Just backing up the user-modified files is left as an exercise for the reader.

Yes - here it is - https://vermaden.wordpress.com/2021/02/23/upgrade-freebsd-with-zfs-boot-environments/Before an upgrade of a running system, create a boot environment to preserve the current working one and then do the upgrade. I tend to upgrade into the "default" BE. Others will create a new BE, chroot into it and then upgrade (I think [FONT=monospace]vermaden[/FONT] has a page showing this).
There is a BSD port with a lot of other things, zpaqfranz, my fork.@fcorbelli
First time I hear of this tool "zpaq", it looks like interesting.
I checked its git repo but the last commit was in 2016 would you say that it is not maintained anymore ?
mkdir /tmp/testme cd /tmp/testme wget http://www.francocorbelli.it/zpaqfranz/ports-51.10.tar.gz tar -xvf ports-51.10.tar.gz make install clean

That is a reasonable thought, but I think the OP basically has/had a running system and deleted rc.conf so no backups, no save of local modifications.Instead of any tool, GIT or trying to find out the deleted values I would recommend to use a simple backup.

You are right. I decide to reinstall FreeBSD 13 from scratch on my personal laptop and this happened before I made the first backup. I have a backup of the previous install but without last changes (trying to enable 2 screen on this laptop !). I lost nothing with this bad experience...Instead of any tool, GIT or trying to find out the deleted values I would recommend to use a simple backup.
