tar --newer .. or --list-incremental
Hi, I'm trying to use tar to do an incremental backup. I'm having a problem with the --newer option. I could be persuaded to use the --list-incremental option as well but I can't get that working either.
I'm using RedHat 7.2
Here's what I tried:
tar --newer 20June2002 cvpf /tmp/20jun02 /home
in which case it says that I must specify one of Acdtrux
(BTW, I'm just using /tmp as an example, i've tried that and /mnt/zip but neither work)
So, I thought the --newer option should go after the cvpf.
tar -cvpf --newer 20Jun2002 /tmp/20jun02 /home
When I tried that then it thinks that the file I want to back up to is named --newer.
