Backup Exec version Compatibility
Posted on 2006-04-22
I have a cd backup set made in 1999 with backup exec desktop (I think) and I would like to restore some of the data on it. I no longer have the cd and I've looked around the mess symantec has made out the veritas site and I can't find any info (presumably as they sold the desktop code to stompsoft and then to roxio?) As far as I can tell roxio isn't offering an eval version and I have no idea if their MyPC product will work and apparently symantec doesn't offer evals of of the Small Biz or Ent versions of the existing BE.
So...question is... does the MyPC from roxio support backups made with earlier versions does anyone know of a -legal- evaluation version of older veritas BED (no cracks or warez sites please and thanks)
If not, my one hope is that I seem to remember there's a copy on W2K server rez Kit (anyone have the disks to let me know if this is the case so i can wait till work on monday)
Any other solutions are appreciated of course...
