ArcServe 2000 - backing up only folder tree?
Posted on 2005-05-11
I'm using ArcServe 2000 Advanced Edition (v7.0 Build 1100)
Backing up seems to work with no errors. I do a full backup nightly.
But when I go to RESTORE I only see the folder tree and no individual files.
So if I pick a folder called C:\DATA then it will restore an empty folder called \DATA.
If I view it before restoring, it shows folders only too.
Either its (A) backing uo folders only or (B) the contents on the tape are not listed correctly and it is really backing *all* up.
I even took the tape I just used for a full C:\ backup to ANOTHER ARCSERVE SERVER. I merged the tape onto my other server & tried a restore.....same thing.....folder structure only. So that makes me think that the files ARE missing from the tape.
What would cause that? I thought maybe "database corruption" BUT doesn't taking this tape to a second server, merging it, and restoring it cancel out that theory. The second [lab/test] server has its own database which works fine. Backup & Restore no problem.
In ArcServe I have no filters set. I just made a simple job too and it only appears to have backed up the folders only. Suggestions???
