Hi,

My OS is Red Hat AS3 and I do incremental backup with dump to one tape and
now make one restore test, so I do as the following:

#> mkdir /temp
#> cd /temp
#> mt -f /dev/nst0 rewind
#> restore if /dev/nst0
> add /home/test
> extract
> quit

(restore the 0 level data)

#> mt -f /dev/nst0 fsf 1
#> restore if /dev/nst0
> extract
> quit

(restore the 1 level data)

#> mt -f /dev/nst0 fsf 1
#> restore if /dev/nst0
> extract
> quit

(restore the 2 level data)

...............

After I restore all level data then I compare the restored data with my
current sourced data, I find the difference---The restored data is
half-baked, except the modify time, all the data is invariable after the
level 0 restore. Did I run a wrong restore? How is the right way?

Thanks for your help!

B.R.
