I did a little poking around and ended up adding this into my local.conf:
BACKUP_RSYNC_OPTIONS=(--sparse --archive --hard-links --numeric-ids
I get a good log file of every file being rsync'd during the backup.
Haven't had a chance to test it during the recover process yet.
When I run the mkrescue will those options be added into the recover
setup or do I need to do more tweaking to get the option set during
It might be a good idea to have that log written to the boot media, in
my case a USB stick. But I'm guessing that would be more involved than
just changing the rsync options.
