       casper-snapshot - a simple script to ease persistence usage.

       Casper-snapshot is a script which can be used to build the right types of persistent image
       files supported by casper. It is also used on exit by the casper init script to resync the
       boot-found snapshots devices.


       -c, --cow DIRECTORY
              specifies the input directory to be cloned in the image file.   Its  default  value
              "/cow"  should be right for most uses. However it could be handy to specify "/home"
              and type ext2 for the type to prepare an image file suited to be  directly  mounted
              by casper as home.

       -d, --device DEVICE
              sets  the device where the media which the snapshot/persistence file/partition will
              be put. If it is not specified, a tmpfs will be  used  and  linked  to  the  user's
              desktop  to move it where it is needed. If the device has no filesystem, an ext2 fs
              will be automatically created and labelled according to the values specified  after
              the "--output" value or with a sane default.

       -e, --exclude-list FILE
              a  file containing a list of filenames/paths that should not be saved. This exclude
              list will be remebered on the target snapshot media for reuse.

       -o, --output FILE
              the filename/label used for the  output  file/partition.  If  left  blank,  casper-
              snapshot will search for a proper file on the device or use the whole partition.

       -r, --resync-string STRING
              internally used on resyncs.

       -t, --type TYPE
              Type could be one of "cpio", "squashfs" or "ext2".
