Re: Tar backups

Haven't investigated further for a while, but when we tried to backup
files using Bill York's suggestion, we could backup the files just fine, but
when I tried to restore them, as a test, all we got was a few 0 length
files created before tar barfed. Possibly some authorization problem, or
something else - and as I said, I haven't had time to investigate futher.
This probably has nothing to do with your problem, but to retain the correct
version numbers, you should do a
(setq nfs:*newest-versions-of-files-appear-to-unix-without-version* nil
on your lispm server before doing a tar dump of it.
