In this command line sequence I use a *.sh wildcard to restore some files. I got three hits. Knowing that there must be more, I typed in the whole name. For example: goFindRanges.sh. I was able to restore an additional file. How could the wildcard have messed up?
My .tgz archive is on a hard disk; not optical medium. I use bash on my Ubuntu 10.10.
