NTBackup Differential Restore
Posted on 2010-08-19
A bit of confusion here. I have a full weekly backup on Saturday and Differential Backups Monday through Friday. Today is Wednesday and I need to restore a quickbooks file from Tuesday.
I go back to last saturday's full backup, restore that, then go into Monday and Tuesday differentials and restore those. Only problem is it doesn't look like the differentials are actually restoring anything (do not replace option shows in the ntbackup window). How do I get the differential backups to append or appropriately modify the original ful backup quickbooks file so that I can get the most recent version of the file from Tuesday?
Looks like the differential file sizes on Mon and Tue are about 100MB, after I run the diff restore on either of the days, the restore processes less than 5MB... any reasons?
The QB file isn't being used by anyone and isn't locked. Please help. I can't seem to find any good documentation on using ntbackup to restore differentials... am I missing something?
