Copy all files from most recent backup to new location


I am trying to figure out a way to copy all the files from a full backup + incremental to a new location as a way of exporting a full file server backup. However when I do a cp to the new location the not all of the files are copied. How would I go about copying all the files to a new location?


I wonder the same thing. I believe that if you have symlinks enabled, doing a cp of the “current” folder would do it. Someone please correct me if im wrong.

I am also facing same issue, when i copy folder from incremental backup folder not all files / folder are copied, i have noticed folder with hardlinks are copied empty, but if i browse folder manually on backup server it shows data, but while copy it doesn’t.

is there any workaround for this ?
