This is only adventage - to use dump.
Anyway - do someone use dump (not tar or similar) on terabyte-sized 

For me it never succeeded, even if it dumps successfully produced output 
could be unrestorable.

After getting this twice i stayed away from this great (but nonworking) 
tool. Backup tool that are not 100% sure is not a backup tool.

with tar, rsync, whatever - partitioning no longer matters as they work on 
file/directory abstraction level.
