Re: [vox-tech] Recovering data

This sounds like one of those problems that depends
completely on the smallest details.  I think it was Einstein
who said a problem cannot be solved at the same level of
awareness with which it was created.  :-)

I don't know if anyone here can help, but if we can you'll
have to give more info.  Like exactly what was involved in
doing the backup and the test restore (Samba?).
