Is it possible to view dumps with files extensions and sizes for analyzing?
I particular, this will be for Windows clients to see what we're really backing up.

Thanks in advance.

You may have to look at the index files stored in the Amanda server. The index files are gzipped and stored under /etc/amanda/<configuration name>/<client name>/<directory name>/

Thanks for the reply.

I knew that the contents are there, but there's no file size. The only way I know how is to recover the dump and look at the files then.

Is there another solution?
