Restoring a corrupt file from good Veritas backup.

I have craeted a backup using Veritas 9.1.  The backup was done to disk and (unfortunately) it was broken down into 1Gb chunks - about 24 all up.  The backup is good and contains two other files which I can restore without problem.

I need to be able to restore the corrupt file so I can then run the appropriate recovery tool on it, but Veritas refuses to restore this file (albeit reporting a successful restore).

I have tried using NT backup, but when it hits the end of the file it asks for Vol#2 but doesn't allow me to browse although it is in the same location as the first.

Is there anyway I can configure or use Veritas to ignore the fact that the file is corrupt or alternatively can I combine the 24 .bkf files into one, thereby allowing me to use NT backup to do the resore, which ignores the fact that one of the files is corrupt.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Im using Veritas 9.0 (Server). When I create a restore job I have the option to set "Restore Corrupt Files" under "Properties, Settings, General".

Thanks for the quick reply.

I looked through all the options, but missed that one.
