Restore

Post#1 by Ed_P » 09 Feb 2017, 06:46

If I make a backup module of some settings and changes using:

Code: Select all

cp -a --parents    /home/guest/.config/dconf/*                    /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents    /home/guest/.cache/dconf/*                     /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents    /home/guest/*                                  /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents    /home/guest/.mozilla/plugins                   /tmp/mod/ 
Can I restore them later with something simple like:

Code: Select all

   mloop /mnt/sda6/porteus3.2/modsavedat/mychanges.xzm
   cp -a --parents  /mnt/loop/*                                  /
   uloop

You can restore them later with something simple like, e.g:

Code: Select all

cp -a /mnt/loop/* /

Yup. :good: That worked perfectly tome. Thank you. :beer:

Unfortunately now I'm faced with the "Cinnamon has crashed" error. :evil:
