I am using the folowing to backup saturday
tar -jcf etc.bz2 /etc /usr/local/etc
I would like to do an incremental on monday (et al) in /bak/monday (et al)
tar -cf etc.bz2 /etc/ /usr/local/etc/ -g /bak/saturday/etc.bz2
Is this the correct format? I cannot get it to work. I can get it to leave a big enough bz2 file in /bak/monday but I can't untar it. though I can the initial full backup from saturday.
Do I need to copy the bz2 archive to /bak/monday? Do I need a different command? Does -g not support bzip2?
ideas? FreeBSD 5.2.1 TIA reed
