Which FreeBSD directories to backup for bare metal recovery

Like OpenIndiana, FreeBSD uses a ZFS root filesystem by default. Ergo, the backup method is approximately the same: backup everything that’s a ZFS filesystem and exclude the rest. Additional exclusions:

/dev/*
/tmp/*
/mnt/*
/proc/*
/compat/*
