List Files in Backup


I want to have a list of all files in a particular backup

Step-by-step guide

  1. Login to the server

  2. Find the backup number: see List Available Backups

  3. Run the following command:

    $ sudo burp -a l -b $BACKUPNUMBER
    # or
    $ sudo burp -a L -b $BACKUPNUMBER
Some useful hints
  • The zeros in the backup number can be omitted.

  • -a l: short list without details

  • -a L: long list with all file details
