I've always found a test restore works wonders for the peace of my mind. Two types: cd <dest dir> restore -Nrf <backupfilename> To test that it all "appears" it ought to restore. Then, cd <dest dir> restore -if <backupfilename> To confirm a few files restore properly completely. YMMV, and obviously check man restore! -Rich _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
