I try to backup an old Mac OS X Tiger 10.4 before upgrading it to 10.6. All the files to be backed up are located within the
cd /tmp sudo tar cvpf backup.tar /Users/Johndoe
However the tar command aborts the operation and says:
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
The homedir is about 30 Gb and there is about 100 Gb available space. I see no errors in the console output.
How can I backup this old Mac? Should I use something else than tar?
