Tumblr finally created my backup files

Just unzipping the archive, and the extra zip archive within the archive broke the image references, but I could fix that by manually moving the media folder into the post folder. So what I had heard from others that Tumblr's native backup still refers to the online site was not true for me. (maybe they tweaked it?)

Moving the media folder however did not fix the display for reblogged posts, though the images also seem to have been downloaded. Generally I do not use my Tumblr to reblog things, but I had reblogged my own art that was first posted to [tumblr.com profile] yuletart. Backups of those posts just display a link to the original post. The same is kind of true for backups of posts where I uploaded my art to Tumblr but also included a source link with the image to the corresponding DW post so people could see higher resolution details or such stuff. Only in that case the link isn't even shown, because it has no link text, it's just visible in the source code.

It doesn't save notes for posts, but did downloaded messages, so that is nice.
