Ok, here's the deal. I've found I can use the Plesk "psadump" utility to create backups of my data. I've successfully used both of the following so far: Code:/usr/local/psa/bin/psadump -F -f - --nostop --tar-ignore-failed-read | split -b 1000m - dump While I'm not sure what the difference is between "dump" and "backup", I do know one uses gzip. I've then used PSFTP (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html) to securely download the dump/backup file to my local Windows hard-drive for off-site storage. However, so far I'm not able to open the file up and view what is inside. I've even tried Winzip which can open tar and gz files, but to no avail. My goal with opening the "psadump" resulting file in Windows is so that I can verify the data is intact as a precaution. Am I doing something wrong? Can this file be opened in Windows and its contents examined? I do keep copies on the server as well, but feel I should have a weekly off-site copy just in case. Any help would be greatly appreciated. - Matt.
