I'm doing a back up exercise, and google is not helping me.
I've done a copy of the entire root drive using <# rsync -a> onto a back up
drive (small because all data is on seperate drives).
To what extent are /proc and /sys recreated by the system as required, and to
what extent do they need to be backed-up? I hope that question makes sense.
