I need to restore a LibreELEC backup located on a network drive on a smaller card than the one originally created from. The backup si 1.4 GB, the free space is 2 GB. It should fit, because the tar is not compressed.
The usual restore process first downloads the backup file and saves it on the card and then reboots and tries to extract it from there. And fails, because now there are only 0.6 GB of free space remaining. Is there a way to directly extract a backup from a USB stick or network drive?
