avoid tar: Removing leading `/' from member names from logfile
Using the method described on this stackexchange post, I can get a clean backup run.
To be specific, I added "-C /" to my tar command and removed the leading slashes from my include options.
Any pro or con to possibly making this the default?
pro, it is easier to restore to a different location
I am not sure if I am reading the security implication correctly if absolute or relative paths are desirable. So not sure if this setup is a pro or con.
