Sorry, I didn't got an email about your entry and didn't have a look at this corner of the web pages :-(

Bug is fixed since a long time (I just checked again).

BTW, it's important to also set option -u also, or storeBackupRecover.pl will not work properly.

If you use checkDevices* and set block size lower than 1M bzip2 compression is used for backup of block device but other files are compressed right with gzip. There is no warning at all but extension of the files of block device is as in parameter (.gz)

storeBackup -c 'gzip -9' -p '.gz' -s ~/stbu/empty -b /media/backup/backup/ -S system -l /tmp/storeBackup.log --checkDevices0 /dev/sda1 --checkDevicesBS0 256k --checkDevicesCompr0 --checkDevicesDir0 .
