How do I restore files that have a blank space within the filename?


ANSWER


Built into the application is the ability to use wildcards in restoring regular files. There are two ways to handle restoring filenames with blank spaces:

1. From the GUI or Web Interface:
After selecting the file(s) to be restored, replace the {space} character with an asterisk(*).

2. From the command line:
# strestore -d {device or directory} -L {backup id} -t R -f "{filename with asterisk}"

example (to restore the file "test one"):
# strestore -d st0 -t R -f "/home/storix/test/test*one"
