    A huge issue over here!!

    I've tried many times to restore my backup and I noticed that half of my domains are missing. Using this forum I came a little further.. The backup of plesk seems to be mime encoded, so after some more searches I discovered that it is possible to extract the files using this command.

    cat dump.* | ripmime -v -d /extractlocation/ -i -

    But now the worse problem. There's a 2GB file limit in the ripmime command:

    Decoding filename=textfile581_1
    Decoding filename=textfile582_1
    Decoding filename=textfile583_1
    File size limit exceeded

    One of my larges customers has a website with a total size around the 5 gb. A compressed backup is more than 2 gb. I'm not able to extract the attachments out of the mime packages. Also psarestore is not able to do is. Is there any hope?
