I am attempting to restore a root filesystem I donwloaded this morning.
I downloaded it in binary mode, and when I try to
restore -rf /usbstick/root.dump
I am getting:
"Tape is not a dump tape"
Should dumps be transfered in BINARY or ASCII mode?
Any other insights welcome.
Also, should I remove the .snap file in the pristine filesystem before performing the restore?
Also, The dump was done on a freebsd 7.2 R machine, and I am using the FreeBSD 7.2 live filesystem CD to do the restores.
