faum-mergecow - Tool for merging copy-on-write files
lets you merge the changes recorded in the copy-on-write
file with the data on the (untouched, because of copy-on-write) original
media. This can be useful for testing first with copy-on-write and then
finalizing everything by merging the changes back into the original media.
The first parameter is the filename of the original media. The map file and the
copy-on-write data will be found by appending .map and .cow. (usually this
will be ide- #
/media in your virtual machine directory).
The second parameter file
is the name of the file which will contain the
merged data. This file can directly be used as media for virtual machines.
Make sure there is enough room on your filesystem for this file!
