The problem is, if I select "Restore Directories Without Crossing
Mount Points" and run the restore, nothing is restored. This is
using the jnbSA utility. In the directory listing, I click on the
circle next to / which appears to select everything, when I click
on "Files marked for restore", it only shows /. The source of the
restore is 'backups' and the date range includes at least one full
backup and several cumulative incremental backups. Then when I
select 'restore', I select the second option to restore everything
to a different location with source / and destination /mnt/.
I then select the "Restore Directories Without Crossing Mount Points"
and uncheck the "rename soft links" option, and submit it.
If I don't select the mount points option and actually mount the
other partions under /mnt/... in advance, then run the restore
everything works as expected?
