i missed the backup dumped part, thanks for noting it,
I am using XFS filesystem

I'd still use tar anyway ;)
Even when using REV drives from iomega we use tar... why bother mounting
when tar can do all of that including rights/ownership...

Just go:
tar -cf /dev/st0 --exclude=/proc --exclude=/sys /

if /dev/st0 is yur tape drive ;)
