The RESUV utility can be used to restore data from a UVBACKUP tape.

 By default, the restore process will do the following in order:

  1. Restore from tape
  2. Delete .Type1 files
  3. Delete empty sub-directories.
  4. Run PortBas on directories with source in them
  5. Convert VOC entries to MD entries

The -e -r -t -p and -m options can suppress some of these phases. The -R , -E , -T , -P or -M option can cause ONLY those phases.

resuv {-Options} {Targetdir}

Option Description
-c suppress check on directory being empty
-d debug display on
-e suppress empty directory delete
-m suppress conversion of VOC entries to MD entries
-p suppress calling PortBas on all source files
-r suppress Restore from Tape phase
-s suppress the resize of all jBASE files
-t suppress deletion of ".Type1" files
-v verbose mode
-E delete empty directories
-M convert from VOC records to MD records
-O keep all the object files i.e. those that end in .O
-P run PortBas on all source files
-R restore from tape
-S resize all jBASE files
-T delete all .Type1 files

resuv creates a directory in the target directory using the name of the account in the uvbackup. The usual default block size for a uvbackup save appears to be 8192. Also the uvbackup format provides a different label type to the standard SMA version and so the label parameter should be configured to NONE.



When doing a uvbackup on a Windows platform, specify a relative path to avoid problems caused by the translation of drive characters.

The LABEL=NONE option is required when doing the T-ATT.

Use of the -rev7 option when doing the uvbackup should no longer be necessary.

The -M option will change references to dictionary files in attribute 3 of F-pointers to the jBASE syntax. For example D_CUSTOMER is changed to CUSTOMER]D. In addition, trailing blanks are removed from attribute 1 of items that commence with "PQ" or "PQN".
