      dcopy - copy HFS file system with compaction.

      /usr/sbin/dcopy [-d] [-ffsize[:isize]] [-F hfs] [-scyl:skip] [-v] [-V]
	   source_fs destination_fs

      The dcopy command copies an existing HFS file system (source_fs) to a
      new HFS file system (destination_fs), appropriately sized to hold the
      reorganized results.  For best results, the source file system should
      be a raw device, and the destination file system should be a block
      device.  Always run dcopy on unmounted file systems.  (In the case of
      the root file system, copy it to a new minidisk.)

      If no options are specified, dcopy copies files from source_fs,
      compressing directories by removing vacant entries and spacing
      consecutive blocks in a file by the optimal rotational gap.  If
      options such as -f or -s are specified, the destination file system
      structure will be different from that of the source file system.

      dcopy makes the destination file system identical to the source file
      system and preserves the pack and volume labels.	Thus, to compress a
      file system without moving it, use dcopy to copy the files to another
      file system and the dd command to copy the file back (see dd(1)).

      Directory compression is accomplished by running dcopy on the primary
      copy of the file system and allowing the modified directories to
      propagate to the other copies of the file system in the normal manner.

      dcopy recognizes the following options:

	   -d		  Move subdirectories to the beginning of

			  Specify the file system size (fsize) and inode-
			  list size (isize) in blocks.	If this option is
			  not specified, the source file-system value is

	   -F hfs	  Specify the HFS file system type.  The type of a
			  file system can be determined with the fstyp
			  command (see fstyp(1M)).  See DEPENDENCIES.

	   -scyl:skip	  Supply device information for creating the best
			  organization of blocks in a file.  cyl is the
			  number of block per cylinder; skip is the number
			  of blocks to skip.

	   -v		  Report size of source and destination file system.

	   -V		  Echo the completed command line, but performs no
			  other actions.  The command line is generated by
			  incorporating the user-specified options and other
			  information derived from /etc/fstab.	This option
			  allows you to verify the command line.

      dcopy can be executed with or without options.  If no options are
      specified as in this example, the source and destination file systems
      are identical.  Any differences between the two file systems lie only
      in the available disk space.

	   dcopy /dev/rdsk/c2d0s4 /dev/dsk/c2d0s5

      If options are specified, expect a major difference between the source
      and destination file system structure:

	   dcopy -F hfs -f40960:260 -s45:5 -d /dev/rdsk/c2d0s4 \

      dcopy produces invalid results if run on a mounted file system.

      The figures specified in option arguments cannot be smaller than
      corresponding figures in the source file system.

      dcopy only operates on HFS file systems.

      dcopy was developed by HP.
