Examining the contents of a backup

Examining the contents of a backup

In the Backup Manager: 

  1. Select Media Contents from the Examine menu.

  2. If necessary, select or enter the correct ``Media Device'', then click on OK.

  3. When prompted, insert each backup volume.

  4. If the media contains a scheduled filesystem backup, the Backup Manager reads the file list from the first volume and displays the list of all the files contained in the backup. 

    If the media contains an unscheduled backup or another backup not known to the current system, the Backup Manager reads all the volumes of the backup and displays a list of all the files contained in the backup. 

    At this point, you can view the contents of directories or search for a pattern.
