Restoring Backup Exec12 files

Created: 16 Jun 2014 • Updated: 18 Aug 2014 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have a client that used BE12 to archive data on their old server.  This are flat files... no exchange, sql, etc.  They have migrated to a new server and elected not to use Backup Exec any longer.  Is there a utility to restore these without having to load BE12 on the new server?  Can I load it on a laptop and mount the BKF files (on a USB drive)?  Thanks.  Any input greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

You can try using the built-in Windows backup utility to access the files, but there is no guarantee this will work.

If it doesn't work, then your only option is to load BE 12 on a server and restore before backing it up with the new backup application.

Thanks!
