Help Restore from Multiple BKF files

Created: 01 Mar 2013 | 4 comments

I have a sbs2003 server crash a week after the tape drive died. I chose to back up to disk until the replacement tape drive arrived. I have 55 x BKF files all 1Gb each and I am having real trouble resoring the files on a different server. The backups were created (and tested) using version 12.5, I am trying to restore them using version 11D I do not have a spare server to run version 12.5 on.

 

Thanks

I am guessing there would be issues with restoring with an older version.

However, you may try inventorying the B2D & then catalog the backup sets & then attempt restore.

From the Devices tab, right-click the Backup to Disk folder which has the bkf files & choose inventory.
