    Hallo to everyone.

    I am using Plesk 7.5.2 for Linux. I am trying to back up my domains but the back up that i download is an unknown format. I have a client access to Plesk. Can any one help me?? I want a ".tar.gz" format!!! Is there a way to download the Plesk format and change it into .tar.gz??

    Thank you in advance!

    Did you ever figure out what the format is of the Plesk backups? I'm curious too.

    Thanks. I've located the other threads now. I was able to decode the file and got a bunch of files (17 of them) ending with .001, .002, etc. I tried renaming them to end with .tgz but my Winzip 10 program still won't open them.

    The time I did it, I used WinRAR to be able to access the .tgz files. I can't help you out with Winzip 10, I don't use it.

    I'll try that, although Winzip 10 has been able to read other tgz files.

    Let me clarify something about Shadowman's post:

    1) We did not name them .tgz, we named them .tar.gz

    2) WinRAR was able to access MOST of the files. Apparently some of the files (small byte count filesize) were not readable, but this is ok since they do not contain actual data.

    Look for the file(s) which are larger than a few K (like 10K or more), these are the ones which will contain your data.

    I guess it's time to take Shadow back to the classroom.....

    Thanks jamesyeeoc. That worked. I finally got the files I needed out of the archive.
