We recently did a massive multi server conversion upgrade. We used Acronis to Backup/Restore the data from the old servers to the new.
Being an insurance company we tend to keep old data years back where there look things up by date. The problem I discovered about a week later is that during the Acronis restore (first time to use Acronis) unless you tell it to retain the original dates it restored everything with the current date.
I restored again correctly to an ext hard drive so that I could copy and paste it to it's original location.. that's no problem. The problem is since a week has passed by some files have been updated since the original restore, therefore if I copy/paste it will want to over write everything.
How can I copy/paste by date? Somehow where I can state anything after 4/16/10 gets over writen anything else doesnt.
I'm trying to avoid going file by file... uggh it would take me forever.
