I'm in the process of checking out a CD/DVD-based backup package.
In my first test, I noticed in the error log a bunch of carps about
file sizes changing in /sys. I know that /proc is a pseudo filesystem
comprising nothing but hooks into the kernel, and I know that I don't
want to back that up. /sys looks like the same sort of thing, full of
directories that take up 0 bytes, down to files that ls reports as
Is it safe to assume I don't want to backup /sys?
