Restore local WhatsApp backup after factory reset

The phone is a Samsung J7 Prime. Lately, the memory was getting full and this ended up in causing Google Play Services to stop working and crashed Google Play Store which was not available anymore. Tried cleaning and increasing the available memory and following Google guides to get back to normal to no avail. Last resort was to factory reset. I made sure to use Samsung Smart Switch and Cloud Backup after doing a local WhatsApp backup since Google Drive wasn’t accessible anymore. After the reset, the shock was that the local WhatsApp backup files were all gone. Tried using several recovery software but all failed to see the deleted backup files or any deleted file for that matter. I also read that file recovery needs rooting which is not something I’m keen on doing this as the phone is not mine. What are my options at this stage and is there any possibility to get back the deleted backup files? This happened yesterday late evening and the phone hasn’t been used much since.

P.S. Samsung Cloud Storage sucks as it requires 2FA and to sign in requires an SMS which is not being received (that’s another issue that I’m not addressing here) and I’m not even sure if the backup files were copied to this storage in the first place.

Google Backup and Sync won’t “Ask before removing both copies”?

The Google Drive Help Center explains that when you delete a file from your computer you have these three options:

  1. Always remove both copies: When you delete something on your computer or, it will be deleted everywhere.
  2. Never remove both copies: When you delete something on your computer, it will stay on
  3. Ask before removing both copies: When you delete something on your computer, it will ask if you want to delete it everywhere.

And I’m interested in the third option, but in my case it doesn’t work the way it’s described above. In fact, it works exactly as #1, i.e. a file gets deleted everywhere without any prompt. Why could that be?

postgresql – backup using gzip slow

We are currently backing up some schemas in Postgres using this command:

pg_dump -h localhost -n test_schema mydb | gzip > /data1/backup/test_chema.dmp.gz

And we are getting a rate of 50 Megabytes per minute, which is pretty slow, we think this could be improved.

Disk seems to be OK so is CPU.

Any thoughts on how this can get improved?

Centos Web Panel Backup issue

I am using a server with two disks (64 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD). I have installed Centos web panel in it. I have set up the backups to 1 TB HDD but while generating the daily backups centos panel automatically creates a temporary folder /home/tmp_bak/ and only transfers the backup files to second disk (/backup) after completing the backup generation process. It is making my / partition full and I need to manually move the backups to resolve the issue.

Is there any way to resolve this? I have gone through some forums but can’t find any fix.

SharePoint Backup option – SharePoint Stack Exchange

Which product are you handling? SharePoint Server or SharePoint Online?

For SharePoint Server, it provides two backup systems: farm and granular.

The farm backup architecture in SharePoint Server starts a SQL Server backup of content and service application databases, writes configuration content to files, and also backs up the Search index files and synchronizes them with the Search database backups.

The granular backup and export architecture uses Transact-SQL queries and export calls. Granular backup and export is a more read-intensive and processing-intensive operation than farm backup.

For more detailed information, pleas check the official doc:

For SharePoint Online, Microsoft handles the backup and restore architecture, you can restore sites, lists, items through proper process. For more complex problems, you may need to get a service request about it for more help.

linux – cannot chroot into system backup because of file redirects

Im trying to restore a rsync arch backup to boot from after my partitions have been reformatted (so I have to re-install my boot-loader). Of course to do this I need to chroot into the system after It has been copied from my backup drive. I have my backup mounted to /mnt/system so I tried to execute arch-chroot /mnt/system. This resulted in an error: chroot: failed to run command /bin/bash: not a directory. This puzzled me so I looked into the backup and noticed that in its root directory the folder bin, lib, and lib64 were not directories but instead they were files. within those files were what ill call redirects (i couldn’t find the real name) that just consisted of the location of the real directory where those folders were housed. for example, the contents of the “bin” file were just usr/bin which was the real loation of the folders. Im not sure what program did this but it seems to be messing with chroot as it does not know how do deal with these redirects thus causing it to fail to find the bash shell to drop me into.

After that I just went to the next logical step which was to run the command arch-chroot /mnt/system/usr because if the files it needs were there it should work right? But when I run that command it gives me a diffrent error ==> WARNING /mnt/system/usr is not a mountpoint. This may have undesirable side effects. and under that… mount: /mnt/system/usr/proc: mountpoint does not exist. Ok, so it cant mount to sub directories because its not a mountpoint root. and it also needs the /bin, /lib and /lib64 directories to be in its scope. So, to try and fix this I tried to pacstrap the base package (which includes bash) into the root of the mountpoint /mnt/system. After the install I went back into the mount-point, When I was there I saw that pacstrap just added the base package to the /usr folder. It looks as if, unlike chroot, It understood the redirects and installed it there.

so, heres my dillemma, pacstrap understands these file redirects but chroot does not. Therefore I cannot get pacstrap to install bash and its dependencies where chroot will recognize it. or im just missing something obvious. one of the two.

also, if the file redirects mess with chroot, will this mess with other programs as well?

Any help will be appreciated.
