This is an old backup, maybe 1 year old and I have just installed Mageia 3 on a new machine. I have gotten to the point whereby I can see my previous back ups, which were done from the local machine and I am trying to restore to the local machine too. To begin with I am just trying to restore a single file. The command is below, along with the error messages. Seems that the first command, that beings with /usr/bin/ssh is expecting a password, or at least that what happens when I try it manually. Not really sure how to proceed from here. Any help would be much appreciated, also this is just a personal back up and I don't have too much backuppcPC / Linux knowledge. Running: /usr/bin/ssh -q -x -l root linuxpc env LC_ALL=C /bin/tar -x -p --numeric-owner --same-owner -v -f - -C /restores Running: /usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_tarCreate -h linuxpc -n 612 -s /photos -t -r /Pili -p /photos/ /Pili/IMG_0558.JPG Xfer PIDs are now 13163,13164 Tar exited with error 65280 () status tarCreate: Unable to write to output file (Connection reset by peer) restore failed: BackupPC_tarCreate failedThat looks like you haven't set up the ssh key for backuppc to execute as root on the target. But, to grab a single file it might be easier to download through a browser and then copy it where you want.
