hi Experts,

2nd WK8 DC crashed and unable to boot into Windows. Had reinstalled windows on the 2nd DC. Prior to crash, did a critical volume backup of it through the Windows Server Backup command line and saved at a remote server.

On the reinstalled 2nd DC, configured the same IP and connect to network. Opened the Windows Server Backup snap-in and launched the Recovery Wizard.
Another Server > Remote shared folder > \\serverB\dcbackup

However received error which says:
The specified remote shared folder does not contain any backup

please help

Copy the backup onto a USB drive and try to recover it from the USB Drive instead of over the network share.

hi BCipollone,

Ive saved the backup files to an external USB harddisk at the root - files as follows -
#############################################
[Folder] Backup 2011-02-01 080713
                           |_VHD files & XML Documents
[Folder] Catalog
                           |_BackupGlobalCatalog
                           |_GlobalCatalog
MediaID
#############################################

Attached USB disk and volume letter assigned was F:

From
Windows Server Backup > Recovery Wizard > Another Server >  Local Drives > (can only select CD Drive - E: from the Backup Location drop down)

How do i get it to see F drive?

thanks in advance
