tar procedure may have been compamised
Posted on 2009-03-30
The cord on my laptop, got pulled out during the night (the cat :-(() and I am not sure if the tar file procedure finished or not. Other than restarting or completely untarring, is there a way I can ascertain whether this procedure completed?
Here is what I was using from OmarFarid:
from your laptop:
ssh username@remoteserver "tar cf - /path/to/dir" | dd of=/path/to/local/dir/mybackup.tar
Thanks in advance.
