DUMP/RESTORE File -> TAR File Converter?

DUMP/RESTORE File -> TAR File Converter?

Post by Rene Muell » Wed, 20 Apr 1994 19:16:55

   Is there any converter already written/hacked to convert
   Dump/Restore-files to TAR format?

   Do you something about it?  Thank's for your help!


   PS: Please respond direct by email, thanks.


1. unix dump: dumped twice to same dumpfile; restore if file displays only last dump

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root     554221568 Nov 22 16:07 /mnt/cc/cc

restore > ls
System.map              grub/                   map
System.map-2.4.8-26mdk  kernel.h                message
boot.0300               kernel.h-2.4.8          os2_d.b
boot.b                  lilo                    us.klt
chain.b                 lilo-graphic/           vmlinuz
config                  lilo-menu/              vmlinuz-2.4.8-26mdk
config-2.4.8-26mdk      lilo-text/

That's a mighty big filesize for /boot which i know to be 23 MB.
So i must assume that the first dump (of / ) is still there.
But restore only lets me see the latest dump (on top of that "layer")

Anyone ever encounter this and recover the first dump?
