gtar -g option, incremental backups
Hello and Help,
I am trying to create incremental backup files with gtar and the -g option.
The backup appears to be working but the restore is doing some rather strange things.
I create the tar with the command
gtar -cf test.tar -g test.snap .
I have tried to restore with the command
gtar -xvf test.tar
gtar -xvf test.tar -g test.snap
What I get is numbered directories with the files in them. I do not get the original directory structure.
Please help. What am I doing wrong?
