    problem


    Hi,
    i was able to extract the contents from dump. now for incremental backup i issued the following command
    dump -1aj -f data.bak /forbak/
    DUMP: Only level 0 dumps are allowed on a subdirectory
    DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.

    pls help me to take incremental backup of the directory /forbak to data.bak file.

    Thanks in advance

    Have you looked into using rsync?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    RTFMP - Read the farking man page... It is pretty clear how to do that.
