I try to restore a 5GB file from a backup:
$ rdiff-backup -r 2012-01-26 /backup/path/to/file /restore/dir Exception '[Errno 28] No space left on device' raised of class '<type 'exceptions.IOError'>':
Wenn I do so, I run out of space on
/. I have 8GB free space on
/ and a lot more on the partion with the backups and on the one for the restore. Now I ran out of ideas. Well soon I should give
/ more space, but this is not something I can do now. Where does rdiff-backup put all these tmp data excactly? It doesn't seem to be /tmp!
How can I restore manually from the diff.gz-File?
