Depending on the backup method used in raspiBackup you should choose the right filesystem on your backup partition. Following table lists the different filesystems per backup method.

-: not possible, -+: limited, +: possible, ++: suggested

2G limit: Backup files can not be larger than 2G

 

 

Local backup partitions

Any backup partitions connected locally to the system. I.e. USB disk, USB SSD or USB stick

  dd tar rsync
fat16 -+ (2GB Limit) -+ (2G Limit) -
fat32 + + -
exFat + + -
ntfs + +

-

DON'T USE NTFS which will not persist access rights correctly in the backup

ext2/3/4 ++ ++ ++

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remote  backup partitions
