Re: backup queston

hey,

it depends on which tool u r using for backup. for eg: if you use tar, then use 'tar -tvf device_name'

Each backup tool has it's listing utility/switches

HTH,

Re: backup queston

Hi:

It depends upon the backup command used.
For example: if you backed up with cpio, then you do a cpio -ivt; for tar a tar -vt; for Omniback II, you can do a verify. We need a few more details.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Use the "-N" option on frecover.

Re: backup queston

In that case, use frecover with the -N option.

Read the frecover manpage for more information on other options.
