Hi,

I have a 2008 server that was being backedup via the windows backup software. The server has just crashed and i need to recover some of the data from the system. The only other machine i have is a server 2003, i know there is software to restore backups from 2003 to 2008 but is there anything i can use to restore from 2008 to 2003?

Thanks in advance

It unfortunately doesn't look like this can be done. What about loading another machine win 2008 and trying to recover the data from there.

in the mean time let me see what else I can try

You can mount the backup in another 2008 or Win 7 environment. And then retrieve your data from image.
