Hi

So I had a disaster and I've had to re-install my OS (Maverick). I've reinstalled BackupPC and I'm trying to get the new install to see my old backups (on an external disk).

I've created a link in /etc/backuppc/pc -> /media/external/backuppc/pc

This old host that was being backed up is present within the 'pc' folder
/media/external/backuppc/pc/starry

I've added 'starry' as a host within the new backuppc install - but when I click 'starry' my old backups aren't there. According to the new install of backuppc I've never performed a backup of 'starry'....

I'm sure I've solved this in the past but I can't remember....


Any ideas?

Thanks

I should maybe mention that the new OS is on ext4 and the old backups are on ext3.

It rings a bell that this may be the problem ..... can anyone confirm?
