NTBackup - Shows Successful, Tapes only contain Directories, no files.
Posted on 2007-12-05
I'm using NTBackup on Server 2003 SP2 with a Quantum DAT72 tape drive. The drive worked fine on the old Novell Sever before we had to switch to Windows Server. I can access the tape, mark it as free, whatever. The backup jobs show to be completing successfully, yet when I go to restore a file there are no files, only the folders. I run a FULL backup on Tuesday, and INCS the rest of the week. The System State does show to have it's files. But both my drives, C: and D:, have only the folder tree. I created a couple new folders in different directories with some txt files is each. I checked the logs and the full backup is taking right at 2 hours, it says the verify is successful as well. The folders I made show to be on the tape, but not the txt files. I restore of the folders does work, the folders I check show up in the spot I ask for them to be restored to. I'll provide any info that needed just let me know if more clarification is needed. I am using the /UM "unmanaged media" switch for the tapes. Thanks.
