I had problems making the backup now, and found out why:

I use an usbdisk, mounted at /media/usbdisk. I can access the disk without problems, but when the backup started my normal disk started to fill up, until the system crashed. The reason for this is that the .dar files were stored in /mnt/smb/tmp_dir, and not on /media/usbdisk. I did not have enough space on the HDD, only on the usbdisk. I made another mount: /mnt/smb/tmp_dir to my usbdisk and everything worked fine.

One point: in case of an usbdisk, this contrib is storing the backup in the tmp_dir first, and then all .dar files are copied into the target directory (set0). The copying is not nessecary I think: when I can just use the usbdisk to store the dar files I think the copying is obsolete because I do not use the network.

To mount the usbdisk I use the usbdisk contrib: the combination is working perfectly.

Tomorrow I will try to recover a file with spaces in the name: my pc has just started copying 85 dar files, and I am going to sleep now...

Marcel

Question: ... where do I find the settings to include other directories in the backup.

I wanted to do a restore on some files in the /opt dir and I found that it is not being backed up.

Lucky this was my test server.

Tib
