process to automatically find deleted files based on recent backup
Posted on 2006-11-02
I just had an issue with my fileserver, I lost many files after rebooting Win 2000 server and allowing it to run CHKDSK operations. It deleted "corrupt" index entries as well as the actual file.
Thankfully I had a recent backup from the previous day, but I'm not sure WHICH files were deleted. I could do a restore of the entire file backup and tell NTBACKUP to restore to original location and not to overwrite files, BUT I want a list of all files that are not on our server that ARE on the backup. I will need this for later reference.
I'm using BackupAssist, which utilizes Windows Backup. The backup file is one .bkf file. I'm using NTBACKUP to restore.
