Interesting approach!

While this topic of backup has come up, I'm wondering about restore.

Looking at Data.* files in the var directory, I see:

  Data.fs     
  Data.fs.index  
  Data.fs.old  
  Data.fs.in  
  Data.fs.lock   
  Data.fs.tmp  

If I need or want to implant a Data.fs file into a system, either to restore a
system from corruption, or to copy my working information from my office
system to my home system (and visa versa), I suspect that I should also delete
the .index, .lock, and .tmp files.  Regarding the .in file, I believe it must
remain.  But, these are just hunches I have.

Can anyone shed any light on this?  Thanks in advance.
