NAME¶btrfs-receive - receive subvolumes from send stream
SYNOPSIS¶btrfs receive [options] <path>
DESCRIPTION¶Receive a stream of changes and replicate one or more subvolumes that were previously used with btrfs send The received subvolumes are stored to path.
btrfs receive will fail int the following cases:
A subvolume is made read-only after the receiving process finishes succesfully.
Without this option, the receiver terminates only if an error is encountered or at end of file
By default the mountpoint is searched in /proc/self/mounts. If you do not have /proc, eg. in a chroot environment, use this option to tell us where this filesystem is mounted.
EXIT STATUS¶btrfs receive returns a zero exit status if it succeeds. Non zero is returned in case of failure.
