The system is ubuntu server 12.04.

I am using rSnapshot to back up the system.

I now want to restore everything in the home folder.

I am restoring from an external HDD: /media/backup/backup_disk_2/server3/hourly.0/localhost/home

What's the restore command?

  • My first reaction was to tell you to use man rsnapshot but was astonished to find that it doesn't tell you about recovery, so have a +1 instead. – John Gardeniers Aug 26 '12 at 6:38
  • Yeah I have gone through the docs of rsync and rsnapshot but wasn't able to find any docs on it. – vxd Aug 26 '12 at 6:58

I don't think there is a way to do it with rsnapshot.

From my research it seems like people just copy and paste the file back into the directory.

rsync -av /source /destination
