Cannot restore from backup
I used backup exec 2012 to backup a set of files from my server to disk based storage (usb harddrive). I now need to restore those files to another server. I have installed backup exec 2012 on my new server. I can connect my usb harddrive to the server and see it as drive letter E:. I can see the bedata folder on it. I can see the .bkf files on it. in backup exec, I can see nothing. I want to restore these files to this server. I assume the first step is to setup the disk based storage becuase without any storage items, I cannot inventory of catalog the backup. when I attempt to create disk based storage on the new server Drive letter E: is not available.
This is a very simple situation. files backed up with be 2012 to usb harddrive need to be restored. how in the heck do you do that?
there are tons of documents about restoring but none telling me how to get this backup set recognized. Please help.
