Had a hard drive go out on me so I am moving KMS to another temp box while I get the main one fixed up. I have been able to get the server up and running and I ran kmsrecover /backup. /backup is my folder which contains all the zip files. Running kmsrecover grabbed all the backups which start with C (i.e. etc). There are 6 of these guys, no problem. I can turn the KMS service on and bingo everything is up but the most recent stuff is from the 12/4 when the main backups were made. I do a fullbackup on the weekends, and incrementals during the week. I see 4 zip files which start with I (i.e. dated 12/9. There are also an additional 3 files which end in .part which begin with an I (i.e. I20091210T060002Z.1.part) dated 12/10. I am assuming the C is for complete and the I for incremental?

So my question is how can I do a total recovery where it recovers the complete and the incremental sets of data?

Does this help: ?

F = Full
I = Incremental
C = Manuel full start.

I had looked at the recovery section but I didn't see anything pertaining to recovering the incremental backups. The examples just recover the last complete backup, which is what I followed. I was thinking of just running kmsrecover on the individual incremental files, but wouldn't that overwrite the data I just recovered? I would like to be able to recover it in one step if possible.

marook are the capital letter flags what I should use when running kmsrecover? Example:

./kmsrecover -F /backup

Is this pretty much the command I am looking for?

Thanks for the help and input.
