Hi, I've been playing around with cpio to do some backups on directories.
Anyway, the problem is, I'm finding it REALLY hard to restore just ONE file
Say I want to restore the file "mksysb.backup" from my test.cpio archive.
cpio -im "mksysb.backup" <test.cpio
cpio -im mksysb.backup <test.cpio
cpio -im `mksysb.backuo` <test.cpio
None of these work, but if I just let restore the whole archive, and give
errors on the "same or newer" files it finds, it'll restore it just fine, so
cpio -i <test.cpio
command works, but throws tons of messages on the screen, and it's certainly
not the right way to restore ONE file right?? What am I missing?
PLEASE EMAIL REPLIES! :)
