Hi all,

I lost my Hard Drive and all my many tens of thousands of emails.

Thus, my excellent repository of answers from this list were sent to oblivion.

I make dumps using gzip and forget the command line to restore files from the zipped dump.

I use the command line like:

dump 0 -h0 -uaLf - /home | gzip > dumpfile.gz

If someone cand remind me the proper way to restore a file I would be greatful.
