Backup Exec 12.5 Restore THIS from THAT folder
What I've done is probably wrong, but done out of necessity to deal with diskspace and bandwidth.
I back up an application to disk in a folder called BACKUP. Every day, I copy the contents of BACKUP to an external drive, putting BACKUP into folders named Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc etc.
I need to restore something from last Friday. I moved the contents of BACKUP into a temp folder. (That's the files from the latest backup.)
Then I copied the files from the external drive/Friday/BACKUP into BACKUP.
I can not get Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 to restore from the contents of BACKUP. When I create a restore job, it shows contents of the last backup job, not the older files copied into the folder BACKUP.
I've run an inventory on the folder BACKUP. Restore still shows the wrong contents.
How do I get Restore to backup from the backup files I want it to use?
Thanks for any advice and instruction on how to get the files I need.
