How to use PAX command on OSX to perform incrementals. Problem specifying time. PRIORITY!
Posted on 2007-03-26
I'm trying to use PAX (the archive utility) on 10.4.9 OSX Server. I'm trying to get this set up so that I can archive back to a particular day in order to do incremental backups, but when the backups run, the PAX always gets everything even though I'm setting up the proper date format as far as I can tell from the man pages.
Here is the command I'm using to try to back up anything that has been modified since March 25, 2007 at midnight.
pax -w -x cpio -T 0703250000.00/cm -f /Volumes/Backups/OSX/april-Level5-3-26-2007.cpio .
Instead of backing up what was changed from yesterday to today, this command is backing up EVERYTHING on that directory where I'm running it. So it is probably the wrong date format, although that is how it said to do it in the man page. yymmddhhmm.ss
Please help, I need this going ASAP.
