Hi all first post here.. Okay i have a bad bad problem. Our server went down because our raid got corrupted, i got the server back up BUT i am trying to use ntbackup to restore my old files.. here in lies the problem.

When i run ntbackup.exe i got to the restore tab, then i catalog my data files from an external hard drive.. all is well so far.. after this i check the D:\ drive which is the entire folder i want and i click the restore button.
then what happens is that after the restore finishes the first file in my catalog (presummably) it asks me for
media #2.. I do not have a second media all the .bak files are on ONE drive. if i simply press OK the box just keeps coming up!! i really need to get this server back up by tomorrow so any help will be appreciated i will be
right here by my keyboard waiting lol btw i am using windows server 2003 sbs R2 and if it help i already tried copying the .bak files to a directory on my local machine and that as well still asks me for media #2 when it gets to the
second .bak file, Thank you in advance!!!

there are chances that your one of your bak file is corrupted! i am assuming that you made backups to disk from your SBS box earlier! did you ever test in the past if your backup was able to be sucessfully restored!
