You probably have an error in your .filetool.lst.

The contents are as follows:

root@tcm:/opt# cat .filetool.lst
etc/passwd
etc/shadow
etc/group

I removed the default entries (opt and home) since they are persistent.

You are looking at mydata.tgz, but you have defined the data backup file as databackup.tgz with mydata=databackup.

I renamed it. The automatic backup never worked.

Run the backup command and see if it creates the backup file.
Are you sure your tce directory is writable?

Yes as mentioned before when I manually run the command it works and then it correctly restores the data when booting up.

I think you will need to add backup to shutdown.sh if you want a backup on each shutdown.

Shouldn't it work "out-of-the-box" as the manual says?
