Search Order for Backup Archive File
- Search in cwd.
- Attempt to find file in orig-backup-mp.
- Attempt mount(orig-backup-target-devnode) and try to find archive in the returned mount point.
- Check that first slice file is there.
- Alert if orig-backup-root no longer exists and offer to use alternative location.
