Plesk backup file splits!

    My plesk backup sometimes runs more than 1.5gb-2gb

    Of late, the backup files have started to SPLIT into 2!!!

    pleskbackup.psa --> this will be sometimes 1gb-1.4gb
    pleskbackup.psa.1 --> this will be around 400mb - 600mb

    Now i dont really mind this, but the problem is how the heck do i RESTORE the backups?

    I have no problem restoring the first .psa backup...but when i try to restore the .psa.1 backup, it returns the info.xml missing.

    I've tried copying the info.xml from the first backup file into the second backup file....but not successful. Any ideas?

    i did find something about the split files on the 'how do i' forums -->


    Unfortunately, there was no mention on restoring...other than MANUALLY restoring single files. Id rather not do that, but rather use the Plesk Restore feature.

    I'd prefer to be able to use something i paid for eh :)

    Plesk backup splits backup to more than one file because of files number limitation of zip. You should only start restore from first file and other files will be joined and restored automatically.
