Restoring a specific directory from a tgz file
Posted on 2006-10-20
I need to restore just a specific directory out of a .tgz file, and I don't know the proper command to do it.
I have placed the .tgz file in a temporary directory and can extract ALL files to that directory by issuing this command after cd'ing to that directory:
tar -zxvf full.20061013-233001.tgz
and it works fine... but I don't want ALL the directories, just the one I've mentioned above.
Can someone give me that list bit of info?
