Restores files from the backup.


mixtape-restore <index> <path>

Recursively restores all files in <path> found inside a single backup <index>. The <index> can be specified as an index id (e.g. @586efbc4), a named search (e.g. first, last) or unique timestamp (e.g. 2017-01-01).

The <path> should be the absolute file path for files to restore (e.g. /etc). Use / to restore all files. An initial / char will be added if missing.

The files are restored into a restore directory matching the index file name (e.g. /backup/<host>/mixtape/restore-2017-01-19-0846/). This makes it possible to combine multiple partial restores from the same index into a single directory.

--quiet Disables normal output (quiet mode)
--backup-dir=<dir> Sets the root backup dir, instead of /backup
