NAME
       faum-mergecow - Tool for merging copy-on-write files

SYNOPSIS
       faum-mergecow media-basefile



DESCRIPTION
       faum-mergecow lets you merge the changes recorded in the copy-on-write
       file with the data on the (untouched, because of copy-on-write)
       original media. This can be useful for testing first with copy-on-write
       and then finalizing everything by merging the changes back into the
       original media.

       The first parameter is the filename of the original media. The map file
       and the copy-on-write data will be found by appending .map and .cow.
       (usually this will be ide-#/unit-#/media in your virtual machine
       directory).

       The second parameter file is the name of the file which will contain
       the merged data. This file can directly be used as media for virtual
       machines. Make sure there is enough room on your filesystem for this
       file!
