how to use cpio to unzip file
Posted on 2013-01-04
Dear experts here;
I got a request from my coworker to retrieve one lost file from a backup archive. when i check the archive, it's a big file with 67 GB, and the file ended with .cpio. How could I unzip this file and retrieve a file called Freight Survey Totals.xls (the original path of the file is /u1/shares/ncshare/Freight Survey Totals.xls) Thank you a lot.
I am waiting for solution online, please help.
