tar will normally automatically cross file system boundaries in
order to archive files which are part of a directory tree. You can
change this behavior by running
tar and specifying
`--one-file-system'. This option only affects files that are
archived because they are in a directory that is being archived;
tar will still archive files explicitly named on the command line
or through `--files-from', regardless of where they reside.
tar from crossing file system boundaries when
archiving. Use in conjunction with any write operation.
The `--one-file-system' option causes
tar to modify its
normal behavior in archiving the contents of directories. If a file in
a directory is not on the same file system as the directory itself, then
tar will not archive that file. If the file is a directory
tar will not archive anything beneath it; in other words,
tar will not cross mount points.
This option is useful for making full or incremental archival backups of a file system. If this option is used in conjunction with `--verbose' (`-v'), files that are excluded are mentioned by name on the standard error.
