btrfs-receive - receive subvolumes from send stream


   btrfs receive [options] <path>


   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:

    1. receiving subvolume already exists

    2. previously received subvolume was changed after it was received

    3. default subvolume has changed or you didn't mount BTRFS filesystem
       at the toplevel subvolume

   A subvolume is made read-only after the receiving process finishes


       enable verbose debug output, print each operation (each occurrence
       of this option increases the verbosity level)

   -f <infile>
       by default, btrfs receive uses standard input to receive the
       stream, use this option to read from a file instead

       confine the process to path using chroot(1)

       terminate after receiving an end cmd marker in the stream.

       Without this option, the receiver terminates only if an error is
       encountered or at end of file

   --max-errors <N>
       terminate as soon as N errors happened while processing commands
       from the send stream, default value is 1, 0 means no limit

   -m <mountpoint>
       the root mount point of the destination filesystem

       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.


   btrfs receive returns a zero exit status if it succeeds. Non zero is
   returned in case of failure.


   btrfs is part of btrfs-progs. Please refer to the btrfs wiki for further details.
