I'm trying to backup my entire VM on Fedora Linux. I'm using the following command
tar -cvpzf / test/backup.tar.gz --exclude=/test
But when I do that, I come up with this error:
tar (child): /: Cannot open: Is a directory tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Can somebody please explain what I'm doing wrong?
