I had a question regarding Dump/Restore. I just had to reinstall FreeBSD
completely because of a problem, and now I wanted to RESTORE just the filesystem
'/usr/home'. Well, I went into '/usr/home', then tried "restore -rf /dev/sa0" to
restore it. When it's done all there is is the "/" filesystem.
I know when I did a dump of four filesystems /usr/home was the very last
filesystem I dumped so I know it had to be on the tape. I used the "n" for the device
file 'sa0' so the tape would remain where it is after dumping each filesystem, as
opposed to rewinding and the overwriting any previous dump.
I know there has to be more filesystems on the tape besides "/" because when I
did a "mt -f /dev/sa0 fsf 3" to skip three filesystems forward to the "/usr/home"
filesystem, I didn't get any errors looking for it. So I know it has to be on the
Can you offer any suggestions, help, or what have you?? I'm really stumped by
this and I'm panicking because I may've lost all my valuable data. I'm using a SCSI
tape drive to backup data. Thanks for your time! :)
