There has been a release of bmbackup sitting in clearos-contribs-testing for a long time now and if it is OK I'd like to get it released for general use. The purpose of the update is to enable the use of large disks by switching the formatting of the disk from sfdisk to parted. To download the update, please do:
yum update app-bmbackup --enablerepo=clearos-contribs-testing

If you have problems with USB disks being identified, there is a further manual patch available here. It for /usr/clearos/apps/bmbackup/libraries/Bmbackup.php and the diff reads:
@@ -486,7 +486,7 @@ function restore_backup($filename, $dev)
//$proc_name = file_get_contents("$usb_storage/proc_name");
$proc_name = stream_get_contents($fh, -1);
- if (trim($proc_name) <> "usb-storage") {
+ if ((trim($proc_name) <> "usb-storage") && (trim($proc_name) <> "(null)")) {
clearos_log("bmbackup", "skipping because proc_name NON EQUAL TO 'usb-storage': " . $proc_name);

FWIW it is easier to read the diff off the link I gave.

Please post your feedback to this thread.
