just for information:
If my whole infrastructre is in VMware (Master and media also) & we are using Deduplication with MSDP.
Can I take catalog backup on and All other Backups on USB disk?
then if I delete my master,which is also serving as media server and rebulid it from snpashot from Vsphere.
will I be able to again configure the same USB disk as storage devices on that server and recover catalog from thsi USB device and restore earlier backups of other clients which were taken from Flash backup windows policy or VMWARE backup policy type.?
