So finally our old BE11d server packed up with all its files/tapes/disks et

I was running backup to a local iscsi disk every night - i need to restore these files on a new file server but I cant seem to mount the data..

The fiels are stored in multiple .bkf files - any ideas would be appreciated?

Sorry, but What do you mean by that? You are not able to access iSCSI disk from new BE server or you are unable to get BE 2012 read the bkfs created by 11d?

If first is the case, nothing to do from BE side. 

Otherwise, you can import the backup-to-disk folder to BE 2012 using Configure storage wizard. You can perform an Inventory and catalog upon the import and then see if you can proceed with the restore.
