Data folder holds BE database which contains backup jobs, policies, media set information and other

settings. Data and Catalogs folder are located in the installation directory of Backup Exec.

Everyday BE runs a database maintenance and creates a backup of the BE database and stores 

it in the form of BEDB.bak in the Data folder. To recover from disaster you need latest and healthy

copy of the above folders.

Refer to my blog on recovering Backup Exec from disaster

Can I recover this directly from BEDB.bak of BE 2010 to BE 2012?

You cannot directly recover BEDB.bak from older version to newer version.

You need to migrate database through BEmig. Refer to the below link
