Thread: Back up problem over 3 GB data
04-23-2003, 09:33 AM #1PenguinGuest
Which method do you use if you backup a directory over 3 GB?
I tried to use the below command to backup /usr/local/plesk, which is over 3 GB, but it produced an error when I extracted it.
tar -cvzf backup.tgz /usr/local/plesk

What is the error? Sure it wasnt a warning about relative path names?

Agree, we can't really help you unless you tell us the problem. =)
Also, it make be wiser to first backup to .tar, then gzip it.
This way you get the .tar.gz file. =)
