In v2.9.1 and previous Backup Show Archive in the shell only includes files with extension .esf


When using the "Backup Show Archive" button in the Eos Shell, only showfiles with the extension .esf are saved

Description/Explanation of Issue

Eos v2.9.0 introduced a new file format, .esf2 which uses extra compression to make smaller showfiles.  Unfortunately, the Shell > Maintenance > Backup Show Archive tool was not updated to include files with the .esf2 extension.  This was corrected with Eos v2.9.3.


Install Eos v2.9.2+, then navigate to Shell > Maintenance and use the Backup Show Archive tool there.

Alternatively, files can be transferred using the File Manager in Shell > Maintenance > File Manager
