    My drive failed on Saturday, and it's taken till today for the host to put my backups into my \root folder.

    However the file is called var.031905.tar.gz.gpg and I haven't a clue what to do with it!!

    Any help of how to uncompress it, restore it through WHM most welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. Will the host have the key then, or is it somewhere on the server?
