I have used tar on and between Linux and BSD without any issue, but this documents various BU options for FreeBSD

Here is what I have in my notes:

dump -0a -L /partition | (cd /newdrive ; restore -rf - )
Now, this has been in my notes for a long long time, and you will need to double check if the command is still valid.
