IHAC that sent me a backup from thier WFA.  File is a .gz

Tried to restore from this file and it errored out. Tried renaming it to .dar and still errored out.

Hi Stephen,

Any progress on this? Have you performed a successful restore operation?

Hi Stephen,

A little information on the extensions of WFA files.

The extension of a WFA backup file is .gz whereas the extension of an exported WFA file is .dar.

I don't see why you would want to change the extension of a backup file to .dar .

Cheers,

Tanzim
