    Subject says it all.

    Is there a way to explore the backupfiles made by psadump ?? So i can be SURE that some files are backed up ?

    'Cause i will be shot if some files on my server are missing during a restore .. :cool:

    Ok .. some info for others (using the search function in this forum ;) :

    To explore your psadump files .. use a MIME-decoder ..

    Total Commander (www.ghisler.com) can do this very well .. it is also a real must-have file manager anyway.

    After you decoded the dump-file you will see a lot of .bin files. Rename them to *.tar.gz and you can explore the contents.

    The files you cannot explore after renaming are probably textfiles (MySQL-dumps).
