I tried the suggestions but nothing works I just get the information on which parameters I can use when I run the BackupPC_tarcreate so something is wrong with my command...

I tried this and all I can think of but no luck....i watn the files in the Windowshare to be sent to/piped to restore.tar

Backuppc_tarCreate -h oden -n -1 -s / windowsharename . > restore.tar

Backuppc_tarCreate -h oden -n -1 -s / windowsharename / > restore.tar

> What errors or behavior are you seeing? Using a '.' or '/' doesn't matter in my experience on Linux, as you're specifying a path or filename to restore. ('.' means "the current directory", which would be relative to the share specified.)
