    Does anyone know how to open the Plesk Backup file and extracting individual files?

    I have a FC3 box running Plesk 8. I create a backup file and transfer it to my local windows computer. Is it possible to extract all the files? If so how? I know its stored in gzip format but I still can’t seem to get to the data.

    It's a combination of Winrar and Winzip, if I recall.
    http://forum.swsoft.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=32448 discusses it to some extent, as they try to figure out how to actually restore data that was created with the 8.0 backup.
    A search of "backup file" in the Plesk 8 section here will return a few other results. I know there was a more in-depth topic on how to do it, but I can't find it now.
