I downloaded it in binary mode, and when I try t

that's right.

restore -rf /usbstick/root.dump

I am getting:

"Tape is not a dump tape"

Should dumps be transfered in BINARY or ASCII mode?


Any other insights welcome.

there is other problem somewhere else.

Also, should I remove the .snap file in the pristine filesystem before 
performing the restore?

no need.

Also, The dump was done on a freebsd 7.2 R machine, and I am using the FreeBSD 
7.2 live filesystem CD to do the restores.
ALL fine.
