mfsmakesnapshot(1) make lazy copies


mfsmakesnapshot [-o] [-f] SOURCE... DESTINATION


mfsmakesnapshot makes a "real" snapshot (lazy copy, like in case of mfsappendchunks) of some object(s) or subtree (similarly to cp -r command). It's atomic with respect to each SOURCE argument separately. If DESTINATION points to already existing file, error will be reported unless -f (force) or it's alias -o (overwrite) option is given.


if SOURCE is a directory, it's copied as a whole; but if it's followed by trailing slash, only directory content is copied.
