My client has given me 2 diskettes that have backup files that appear to be msbackup:
Disk 1: CC40901A.001
Disk 2: CC41011A.001
I have read all the threads in here about restoring these files using the old version of msbackup, but I cannot get them to restore. The problem is getting a catalog that will match the file set, I suppose.
Notice that there are no catalogs on those diskettes. (That really is weird tha msbackup would store the catalogs on the harddrive, how did it ever expect to be able to restore after a harddrive crash?)
My problem is, whenever I try to restore, it says there is no catalog and to rebuild the catalog, but that gives an error message: Cannot read volume information from DOS media. How can the catalog be rebuilt from only the xxxxxx.001 file?
Help. Client is in a panic; hard drive has crashed and this is their ONLY source of their customer list.
