Desktop Backup Verify Doesn't Work
« on: April 11, 2002, 07:28:37 AM »
Hello there,

I've tried to verify my Desktop Backup and it fails with the following:

Software error:
Malformed multipart POST
For help, please send mail to the webmaster (admin@ladly.qld.gov.au), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.

any ideas ?

cheers,

Adam

how big is the file, does it seem the right size ?
winzip may open it
or ssh in and gunzip backupname.tgz
and if that works
tar --help

see also dungog.net/sme/faq.html for other ways to backup

Thanks Stephen,

the size of the file is only 11mb.

I used winzip and had a look at the contents. I saw a file in there called /etc/smbpasswd so does that mean all is well ?

Is this a bug or have I a problem with my system ?

cheers,

Adam
