HOWTO – Restore Entire Systems With Amanda

Okay first the bad news…. because of the way the amanda client currently work, recovering a single file is only possible by bringing back the entire DLE. So you expand the whole thing just for a single file  With that said…. ti’s not that difficult


# Pull MyServer’s Dumps from the tape
cd /holdingdisk/
amfetchdump daily D:/mydestination_drive

Now copy these to the windows system and use pkzip or winzip to restore them.
