I want to compare the content of a tar archive (backup of
$HOME) with the content of my local
$HOME to see whether there are files in the tar file which are not yet in the local filesystem.
What is the best way to do that?
tar -dvf archive.tar * in
$HOME already but the output is not really satisfying. It says
tar: Videos: Not found in archive for some files and folders on the first directory level although they are in the archive and then it exits with
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors (exit code 2).
EDIT: It's on Ubuntu 10.04 and I'm quite familiar with the bash.
