Restore based on media not on date (BE 2012)

Created: 14 May 2013 • Updated: 14 May 2013 | 2 comments

Dear,

 

I face the same kind of problem that the user in the following thread:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/bac...

Is there already a solution in BE2012 SP1 or SP1a to solve our problem?

As quick description:

We need to be able to restore based on a media selection not based on a date (or even better, on media selection, then available date).

(our backups are on USB disks and fixed disk -> impossible to make the difference for a quick restore)

As a another suggestion:

When restoring by date and the wrong disk is connected, it would be nice to prompt on which disk this backup is located (or at least say in the log which disk is expected)...

Thanks !

If I am not mistaken, there is an up-coming release which will provide the functionality to do a restore when you select the media.  This is not the release currently under-going beta, but the release after that.

Ok thanks for info! Will miss this functionality, but if there's plan to add it back, this is already a good news.

Guess many people were waiting for that feature to re-appear :-)

Best regards,
