make literal copy of UNIX filesystem
/etc/volcopy [ options ]
fsname srcdevice volname1
The volcopy command makes a literal copy of
the UNIX filesystem using a blocksize matched to the device.
The options are:
The program requests length and density
information if it is not given on the
command line or is not recorded on an input tape label.
If the filesystem is too large to fit on one reel,
volcopy will prompt for additional reels.
Labels of all reels are checked.
Tapes may be mounted alternately on two or more drives.
If volcopy is interrupted,
it will ask if the user wants to quit or wants a shell.
In the latter case,
the user can perform other operations
(for example, labelit)
and return to volcopy
by exiting the new shell.
invoke a verification sequence
requiring a positive operator response instead of the
standard 10-second delay before the copy is made.
(default) invoke the ``DEL if wrong''
The fsname argument represents the mounted name
(for example, root, u1, etc.)
of the filesystem being copied.
The srcdevice or destdevice
should be the physical disk section or tape (for example:
The volname is the physical volume name (for example:
pk3, t0122, etc.)
and should match the external label sticker.
Such label names are limited to 6 or fewer characters.
volname may be ``'' (dash)
to use the existing volume name.
srcdevice and volname1
are the device and volume from which the copy of the filesystem is
destdevice and volname2
are the target device and volume.
fsname and volname
are recorded in the last 12 characters
of the super block (char fsname, volname;).

volcopy is conformant with
AT&T SVID Issue 2.
