Node backup Server/How to extract backup

First of all a big THANK YOU for whoever created the node backup system Backup & Restore - Java Tron

Makes it so much easier to set up an node. However, would be great if multiple connections (on would be possible & maybe a small instruction about how the files are split on Unpacking each individual file leads to error messages, and probably a corrupt database (?).

If someone has been in the same situation as me and wants to spin up a full node:

  1. If you have enough space, just download the whole backup in a single file from
  2. If you dont have enough space, download parts from
  3. To connect & unpack the parts use
cat FullNode_LevelDB_*.tar.gz | pv | tar -xzvf -

The unpacked file will have the database as LevelDB.
