I think i have a backup, it's old but it may have those files. it's a tar.gz file, how do I view the file without extracting it? It's a huge file, takes very long time.
U can find how to use "tar" via "man tar"
But I'll help u now, use the command:
tar -tzf filename.tar.gz
to view the filenames. Or use:
tar -tvzf filename.tar.gz
to view the filenames with "permissions, user/group, size, date, time "information also listed.
