NAME

       btrfs-receive - receive subvolumes from stdin/file.

SYNOPSIS

       btrfs receive [options] <mount>

DESCRIPTION

       Receives one or more subvolumes that were previously sent with btrfs
       send. The received subvolumes are stored into <mount>.

       btrfs receive will fail with the following case:

        1. a receiving subvolume already exists.

        2. a previously received subvolume was changed after it was received.

        3. default subvolume is changed or you don’t mount btrfs filesystem
           with fs tree.

       After receiving a subvolume, it is immediately set to read only.

       Options

       -v
           Enable verbose debug output. Each occurrence of this option
           increases the verbose level more.

       -f <infile>
           By default, btrfs receive uses stdin to receive the subvolumes. Use
           this option to specify a file to use instead.

       -C|--chroot
           Confine the process to <mount> using chroot.

       -e
           Terminate after receiving an <end cmd> in the data stream. Without
           this option, the receiver terminates only if an error is recognized
           or on EOF.

       --max-errors <N>
           Terminate as soon as N errors happened while processing commands
           from the send stream. Default value is 1. A value of 0 means no
           limit.

       -m
           The root mount point of the destination fs.

           By default the mountpoint is searched in /proc/self/mounts. If you
           do not have /proc, eg. in a chroot environment, use this option to
           tell us where this filesystem is mounted.

EXIT STATUS

       btrfs receive returns a zero exit status if it succeeds. Non zero is
       returned in case of failure.
