Using openvz7
Im looking ad my backup strategy
I allways used rsync on openvz6
And looks like on openvz7 this can also be done on /vz/root/VEID But i dont know if i can do a full restore from that...

Now im looking at snapshots
it can make full backups and incremental backups

Is someone using this script?
i have some question hope someone can help

the incremental backups are nice to save space and time on a remote backupserver But how does a restore works.
For what i know you can only restore a full snapshot, the incremental backups have only the changed files

Question 2.
Is it possible to extract a file from the backup for a single file restore?
And if so can someone tell me how?
