File and Settings Transfer Wizard - Oh My God!
Posted on 2006-04-24
I'm a poor pitiful soul, who used the Microsoft FAST method to back up my files. Here's my dilemma. The source drive has been formatted. The FAST files must be corrupt because I get the standard message "the location you specified does not contain store information" error.
I have 8 files in the directory USMT2.UNC
All the DAT files are 2GB except for 8 which is 783MB.
I've researched this thing until I'm blue in the face. I found the fastconv utility, but not matter what I do, I get the same error.
Error Source store is invalid. [ERROR=13 (Dh)
A few questions -
1) Any ideas? I'm up the creek without a paddle if I can't get these restored.
2) Any service out there like ONTRACK that can access the data in these files. If it's not too expensive, I'd consider it.
3) Any other utilities besides fastconv that might work.
