SUMMARY: flarcreate question

The general consensus was that creating an archive from the root filesystem
couldn't be done without
using the exclude option of flarcreate (-x, -X)
It is not an  expected behaviour of flarcreate to archive only the root files
and not other filesystems by default.

Original Question:

Hi Gurus,

how to create a flash archive only from the root filesystem and not from the
mounted filesystems,
without using exclude option?
I tried:
 #  flarcreate -n test /backup/flars/test.flar
and this command created a 100Gb file by archiving  all the mounted
