borgfs - Mount archive or an entire repository as a FUSE filesystem
borgfs [options] REPOSITORY_OR_ARCHIVE MOUNTPOINT [PATH...]
This command mounts an archive as a FUSE filesystem. This can be useful for browsing an archive or restoring individual files. Unless the --foreground option is given the command will run in the background until the filesystem is umounted.
The command borgfs provides a wrapper for borg mount. This can also be used in fstab entries: /path/to/repo /mnt/point fuse.borgfs defaults,noauto 0 0
To allow a regular user to use fstab entries, add the user option: /path/to/repo /mnt/point fuse.borgfs defaults,noauto,user 0 0
For FUSE configuration and mount options, see the mount.fuse(8) manual page.
Additional mount options supported by borg:
- versions: when used with a repository mount, this gives a merged, versioned view of the files in the archives. EXPERIMENTAL, layout may change in future.
- allow_damaged_files: by default damaged files (where missing chunks were replaced with runs of zeros by borg check --repair) are not readable and return EIO (I/O error). Set this option to read such files.
- ignore_permissions: for security reasons the "default_permissions" mount option is internally enforced by borg. "ignore_permissions" can be given to not enforce "default_permissions".
The BORG_MOUNT_DATA_CACHE_ENTRIES environment variable is meant for advanced users to tweak the performance. It sets the number of cached data chunks; additional memory usage can be up to ~8 MiB times this number. The default is the number of CPU cores.
When the daemonized process receives a signal or crashes, it does not unmount. Unmounting in these cases could cause an active rsync or similar process to unintentionally delete data.
When running in the foreground ^C/SIGINT unmounts cleanly, but other signals or crashes do not.
See borg-common(1) for common options of Borg commands.
- -P PREFIX, --prefix PREFIX
- only consider archive names starting with this prefix.
- -a GLOB, --glob-archives GLOB
- only consider archive names matching the glob. sh: rules apply, see "borg help patterns". --prefix and --glob-archives are mutually exclusive.
- --sort-by KEYS
- Comma-separated list of sorting keys; valid keys are: timestamp, name, id; default is: timestamp
- --first N
- consider first N archives after other filters were applied
- --last N
- consider last N archives after other filters were applied
- -e PATTERN, --exclude PATTERN
- exclude paths matching PATTERN
- --exclude-from EXCLUDEFILE
- read exclude patterns from EXCLUDEFILE, one per line
- --pattern PATTERN
- experimental: include/exclude paths matching PATTERN
- --patterns-from PATTERNFILE
- experimental: read include/exclude patterns from PATTERNFILE, one per line
- --strip-components NUMBER
- Remove the specified number of leading path elements. Paths with fewer elements will be silently skipped.
