NAME

       borg-extract - Extract archive contents

SYNOPSIS

       borg [common options] extract [options] ARCHIVE [PATH...]

DESCRIPTION

       This  command  extracts  the  contents  of  an  archive.  By default the entire archive is
       extracted but a subset of files and directories can be selected by passing a list of PATHs
       as arguments. The file selection can further be restricted by using the --exclude option.

       See the output of the "borg help patterns" command for more help on exclude patterns.

       By  using  --dry-run,  you  can do all extraction steps except actually writing the output
       data: reading metadata and data chunks from the repo, checking the hash/hmac,  decrypting,
       decompressing.

       --progress can be slower than no progress display, since it makes one additional pass over
       the archive metadata.

       NOTE:
          Currently, extract always writes into the current working directory ("."), so make sure
          you cd to the right place before calling borg extract.

OPTIONS

       See borg-common(1) for common options of Borg commands.

   arguments
       ARCHIVE
              archive to extract

       PATH   paths to extract; patterns are supported

   optional arguments
       --list output verbose list of items (files, dirs, ...)

       -n, --dry-run
              do not actually change any files

       --numeric-owner
              only obey numeric user and group identifiers

       --nobsdflags
              do not extract/set bsdflags (e.g. NODUMP, IMMUTABLE)

       --stdout
              write all extracted data to stdout

       --sparse
              create holes in output sparse file from all-zero chunks

   Exclusion options
       -e PATTERN, --exclude PATTERN
              exclude paths matching PATTERN

       --exclude-from EXCLUDEFILE
              read exclude patterns from EXCLUDEFILE, one per line

       --pattern PATTERN
              experimental: include/exclude paths matching PATTERN

       --patterns-from PATTERNFILE
              experimental: read include/exclude patterns from PATTERNFILE, one per line

       --strip-components NUMBER
              Remove  the  specified  number  of leading path elements. Paths with fewer elements
              will be silently skipped.

EXAMPLES

          # Extract entire archive
          $ borg extract /path/to/repo::my-files

          # Extract entire archive and list files while processing
          $ borg extract --list /path/to/repo::my-files

          # Verify whether an archive could be successfully extracted, but do not write files to disk
          $ borg extract --dry-run /path/to/repo::my-files

          # Extract the "src" directory
          $ borg extract /path/to/repo::my-files home/USERNAME/src

          # Extract the "src" directory but exclude object files
          $ borg extract /path/to/repo::my-files home/USERNAME/src --exclude '*.o'

          # Restore a raw device (must not be active/in use/mounted at that time)
          $ borg extract --stdout /path/to/repo::my-sdx | dd of=/dev/sdx bs=10M
