Question #140592 on Simple Backup changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/140592

Status: Open = Answered

Jean-Peer Lorenz proposed the following answer:
I've digged into it and found that your issue is a bug. The problem
stems from tar's commandline option '--occurrence' which behaves
inconsistently. It does work if a top-level folder is being extracted
but does not work for other directories. Unfortunately, pre-release test
didn't cover such cases. Sorry for any trouble. I've filed a bug
https://bugs.launchpad.net/sbackup/+bug/709338 and will release a fix
ASAP.

Thanks to all for choosing sbackup and helping to make it better.

Julien gave more information on the question:
I have enabled the debug output in the configuration gui.

I invoke sbackup from the Application menu in Ubuntu Maverick (french
translation).

My tar.gz file is as follows : 
/etc
/home
/usr/local
/var

If I try to restore my /home/julien/.thunderbird folder (containing one folder 
and three files), only the folder tree is restored but there is no file. I 
obtained the following log running with RestoreAs button.

Hello Julien,

 is there a debug/hidden mode like a verbose one ?
You can enable 'debug' output level within the configuration gui on a 
per-profile basis. This will print a lot of helpful information into the 
logfile.

How to you invoke sbackup? Could you describe the structure of your file
tree you're storing? I really want to help! It's working perfectly for
me...so, I've currently no clue. Did you specified a kind of test
profile containing only a small set of files and directories? Does such
test case work as expected.

I'm looking forward to your outcomes, logs...Thanks.

2011-01-21 Thread Jean-Peer Lorenz
Question #140592 on Simple Backup changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/140592

Status: Open = Answered

Jean-Peer Lorenz proposed the following answer:
Hello,

thanks for using sbackup. I don't fully understand your problem. It is,
of course, possible to restore directories and files from a snapshot!
I've tried it 5 min ago in order to confirm that it does work ;-)

I'll explain it:

Given you have a set of snapshots: full one and several incremental one.
Files are only stored when they have changed, i.e. the latest
incremental snapshot will only contain modified and new files as well as
the directory structure.

The graphical UI provides 4 buttons:

--
|  Restore  |  Restore as  |
|-|
|  Revert |  Revert as |
--

As already explained in https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+faq/1325
there is a different behaviour between Restore and Revert. Restore
extracts files and directories contained in the *selected* snapshot. In
contrast, Revert extracts files and directories from the selected
snapshot *and* its predecessors in reverse order.

That is, if you select the latest incremental snapshot (lets say it only
contains unmodified files) and click 'Restore' it will restore only
empty folders. If you click on 'Revert' it will restore all files and
directories in reverse order. Same holds for 'restore as' and 'revert
as'.

HTH.

olyerickson posted a new comment:
Jean-Peer, thanks for your quick response!

In my case I only make (nightly) full backups, so if I understand what
you're saying there should be no real difference. In any case, doing
Restore As... and Revert As... achieved the same result --- only
empty folders.

Maybe I'm missing something; here's what I've been trying to do:

* Mount backup drive on second system
* Use SBackup config to ensure SBackup sees the drive
* Use SBackup restore to Revert As... a full snapshot of e.g. my /home to a 
directory on the second system e.g. /home/lifeboat

At this point I see only folders... I can then select and revert
individual files in the tree, but that gets really old for thousands of
files :(

Question #140592 on Simple Backup changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/140592

Status: Answered = Open

Julien is still having a problem:
Hello Jean-Peer,

In my case, the backup I am trying to restore (/revet) is also a full
backup. I understand your remarks about incremental backups : it only
contains different files from the last full backup and in this case, a
restore action restores effectivly only the files really contained in
the archive.

This is not our case here : I want to restore from a full backup and not
an incremental one. As I suppose that I (and the other people here) am
in a special case, I would like to give you more information but I dont
know how : is there a debug/hidden mode like a verbose one ? maybe we
are using external programms (like 'find' or 'ls' bins) to sbackup which
make that the list of files contain only empty folders ? How can I
provide more information to you ?
