gtar: You may not specify more than one '-Acdtrux', '--delete' or '--test-label' option

comment gtar fails to perform incremental backup
I didn't say it doesn't work. =) but gtar wont make incremental backups. it's interfering with that loop somehow. it's weird one. Once I remove that loop and specify each directory manually - gtar makes incrementals just fine.

comment gtar fails to perform incremental backup
yeah, i changed it to for dir in $sourcedir/* and gtar -cz -g "$targetdir/.gtar-incremental" -f "$targetdir/$base-$now.tar.gz" "$dir" - script runs ok, but still produces full backups! =(( Technically there is no different between my original script and what you suggested to change.

Nope. Because /* will give me each directory in the /. I'm looking to backup only /home/*

comment gtar fails to perform incremental backup
That produced same result - full backup. I figured out that it got something to do with for dir in */ loop, when I remove that and specify each directory/file - incremental works! Can you help? In addition to your comment -G can't take any arguments, it does not create a snapshot file.

comment FreeBSD 10 does not boot after clean install
Exactly same issue here: forums.freebsd.org/viewtopic.php?t=44607 but I also tried replacing hard drive to an older one, and it did not work.

@Netch: Followed your advise and performed gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptboot -i 1 ada0, but BIOS still won't boot.
