Restoring Files with FUSE

Some distros only allow members of the
fuse group to use FUSE.
If this group exists, add your user account to it so you can use the Opsmate FUSE client

Mount your backups by running
opsmate mount ACCOUNTNAME:SERVERNAME MOUNTPOINT
where MOUNTPOINT is a pre-existing empty directory that you own.
Your backups will be mounted at MOUNTPOINT. You can access this directory like any other directory on your filesystem.
You can omit the ACCOUNTNAME and SERVERNAME arguments by configuring a default account and server.
When you're done, run
opsmate umount MOUNTPOINT.
