hello to all...
ok... this is wierd... i feel like an idiot for doing this now, but whatever.
i've backed up alot of stuff into a tar.bz2 archive on my computer. it's right at 3.7GB uncompressed. i sent it accross my network to another computer with the following netpipes commands:
ON SENDER COMPY:
faucet 1234 -out tar -xjOf my-tar-file.tar.bz2
ON RECIPIENT COMPY:
hose 192.168.1.102 1234 -in cat - > my-tar-file.tar.bz2
this may seem ok at first, but in truth, i untarred the contents my tarball into a single file!!! "my-tar-file.tar.bz2" is no longer a bzipped tar file, but the output of a tarball extraction. Gross, huh?
is there any way that i can recover the files from my now jumbled mess of data???? PLEASE?
