Its asking me for the location on the drive.. Yet when i give the location of the data, it says the file doesnt exist...

I think im giving the wrong location.. But is there a format to it?

You need to enter the full path to the file. Usually, something like ../tmp/FUDforum_*

For what it is worth I have developed the habit of starting a backup and copying the path from what FUD generates.

Ensuring of course that I replace the file name for the back up just made with the one I want to restore, and that the file is really present where it is supposed to be.

Update: I found that 2.8.1RC1 keeps track of the backup path for you, and that I Like....... Alot!

Thanks guys


I am new to this so explain things very, very carefully!
