Attach external drive to sys-usb "qvm-block" to list partitions "qvm-block a backup-vm sys-usb:sda1" (whichever is your LUKS partition) mount and unlock inside backup-vm "qvm-backup-restore -d backup-vm /path/to/backupfileinbackupvm oldvm1 oldvm2 oldvm3" to selectively restore certain vms unmount inside backup-vm "qvm-block d backup-vm sys-usb:sda1" Detach drive -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
