@bigpup: I think what you say about not everything of the pupsave being
loaded in RAM... well, it depends if you have specified pfix=nocopy or not.

Nocopy boot option has no affect on how the save is mounted/loaded.

Pupmode controls how the save is used.
Which relates to what storage device it is on, which also controls how the save is loaded/mounted.

@Musher0 & anyone else interested in the history of the hotbackup file for frugal puppies.

I went back in time to an old computer gathering dust in the basement and found a file called hotbkup.tar.gz uploaded by a user named 2byte on Sat 12 Dec 2009 at 17:08.

Attached is a zip file with his original upload & a html copy of the original forum discussion page Smile

Thank you 2byte wherever you are

r__hugues?

You're good! National Archives Canada should offer you a job! Smile
Many thanks for this research.

With your info I was able to bump that old thread. There are
updates, corrections and locales on page 6 of that thread.

BFN.
