The name of the file
2014-12-12 04-00-01.tar. I executed the command:
tar xvf 2014-12-12\ 04-00-01.tar
The output is many lines of the form:
x ../server/: Path contains '..'
And then a few of the form:
tar: copyfile unpack (../server/logs/.DS_Store) failed: No such file or directory
It seems that I wasn't very careful when I wrote the backup script. How can I unpack the file?
