    I need to retrieve an address book from a cpanel full backup file. it was for squirel mail. I would love to just restore the account but it is a 40gb file and i would have to buy another vps and upload it and restore it just to get at it. can you offer some advice on how i could extract it from the backup file?

    Hello :)

    You can manually extract the specific the specific data from the archive using the "tar" command. The data you are looking for is stored at:

    /home/$username/.sqmaildata/

    Thank you.
