Restoring ArcServe in Backup Exec 10d

Hi All,

I know this may be a long shot - but here goes.

I have done a non-compressed, un-encrypted backup (to tape) using ArcServe. I have also been able to successfully restore the data in Backup Exec 10d.

The problem i'm having, is when I do the restore,  the modified dates of all the files and folders are set as that of the resotre date and time.

Does anyknow know how I can get the files to show the modified dates / times of what was taken to tape?

Many thanks in advance!

Pete

Every backup stores certain attributes of the files/folders it has. The attributes can be like Date Modified, Size, Date Created etc... you will see this behavior if the 'Date modified' attribute was not saved during backup or could also be a problem with the difference in the software. As the software did not see the date modified from the source, it has given the current date/time as last modified. Did you try restoring the backup using the same version of Arcserve?

File Attributes - Only DOS file attributes are restored. These attributes are READ ONLY, HIDDEN, and SYSTEM.

Backup Taken on ArcServe v12 in the UK
Backup Restore on Backup Exec 10d in the US

Would that mean even if I was to install ArcServe in the US, i'm probably gonna have the same problem?
I'm assuming ArcServe must keep the file dates / times etc in it's local catalogue?

Even the new installation of ARCSERV will treat the media as IMPORTED
You can restore the data using the ARCSERV installation in the US and the move it to the UK if that is possible.
OR
Install the ARCSERV in UK and move all the catalog information from the US installation as if you were migrating to a new server and then restore the data

Thanks Both - You've been a great help!

Lastly if I may - If I was to do an NTBackup in the UK and restore it in the US, will I get the dates / times i'm looking for?

I really doubt unless both the servers are using the same time server to SYNC with
