I could have even found it by searching for the word sshfs on the --help output.

Thanl you sincerely!

Yes, use options --archiveTypes and --specialTypeArchiver to store those files individually in tar or cpio files.
You may also use option --exceptTypes to exclude some types of special types from the backup.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I am trying to backup/restore device nodes using sshfs as destination for backups, but I got these messages when doing the backup

ERROR     2014.06.18 01:17:13 186109 STDERR of <cp -a </mnt/root/dev/loop3></root/storebackup/mount/devs/2014.06.18_01.17.13//mnt/root/dev>:

and these messages when restoring:

Does storebackup support storing/restoring device nodes when using file systems which doesn't support them for backup storage?

Thank you in advance.
