I am scripting some system backups, and have been using dd to make the images.
I am liking the partimage, but I can not unmount the partitions because they are on running systems.
I am seeing this when I google....
Command-line option: Code:-m,  --allowmnt      don't fail if the partition is mounted. Dangerous !
Can anyone explain what pitfalls might occur if I use this switch?
