Why didn't anyone suggest an uncompressed LHA? It's much faster to archive than a compressed one, it's what I always use to backup the Amigas.

Open a Shell and change directory to the root of the partition you want to backup, then type this:

LHA -eraxz a CF0:Backup

It will make an uncompressed 1:1 copy of your hard drive partition with all metadata intact. To extract it, type this:

LHA -xa x CF0:Backup.lha

If you haven't already, use the AddBuffers command to give CF0: more buffers to make it go faster:

AddBuffers CF0: 330

Should be enough.
