Package: taper
Version: 6.9rb-4
Severity: normal
Tags: sid

I am trying to use taper to do backups to CD-R.  I'm doing this by doing a
backup file, with a max tape size of 650MB.  Then when taper asks for a new
tape, I do the following:

	mv taper.arch taper.arch.1
	touch taper.arch

Then I go and tell taper it's OK to continue.  I do this until I get to the
last volume and then I do:

	mv taper.arch taper.arch.N

(where N is the last number in the set). I end up with taper.arch.[1-N]
representing N CD's that I need to burn.  So far when doing the backup this
works just fine.  However, I can't seem to restore from these sets.  To
restore I do:

	mv taper.arch.1 taper.arch

Then start the restore.  When I get to the end of the first volume, I do:

	mv taper.arch taper.arch.1
	mv taper.arch.2 taper.arch

And then I tell taper it's OK to continue.  At which point taper
immediately quits and tells me that it's done.  The taper.log ends up with
the following in it:

Wed Aug 15 15:21:27 2001:  Starting Restore v6.9b

Wed Aug 15 15:26:47 2001:  0 warnings, 742 errors
Wed Aug 15 15:26:51 2001:  Restore finished.

(I've deleted a whole bunch of ERRORS where taper is trying to set
the attributes on a symlink that hasn't had the thing it's linked to
restored yet.  That part of the restore is working just fine.)

I know that this isn't exactly how taper is intended to be used.  If I'm
making an obvious error in how I'm doing this, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks for your help!
