I choose restore and an alternate directorty.   I am restoring about 3 GIG ... when I look at the restore details everything is there.   however when I do the restore I end up with about 1.7 GIG.   many of the files are 1k...   I am using open file agent to back them up....  does it perhaps have something to do with that?

By that do you mean that files that should be, say, 100MB are only 1K?

Could you post more information about your environment? What OS, what version of Backup Exec? Can you also post a text version of the restore log file if appropriate?

And what is the database you're using?

The reason I ask is that Backup Exec may not be restoring the files because it is 'aware' that there is an active database running and so it won't restore the DB files. For example, with SQL, if you do a complete restore of your server, BE won't restore the SQL databases themselves in the first restore operation. You need to restore the databases in a seperate operation once SQL and the BE SQL agent is running.

So perhaps what you need is either the databse agent or you need to shutdown and/or disable the database software to perform the restore.
