I have about 10 USB drives that were setup as Backup-to-Disk folders in BUExec 12.5 on Server 2003 standard. The old server is gone and I now have a new server with BUExec 2010 and Server 2003 standard.
The data on these drives is out of date for the most part I do want to retain the monthly jobs which are scattered amongst them.
What is the best way to import these old jobs and backup sets?
What is the best way to move the backup sets I want to keep (consolidate them to one or two drives)?
I tried just creating a new backup to disk folder on one of the volumes and though I was able to get the backups off there it was a pain because it made me catalog each individual file on there (about 120 files). I know there has to be an easier way and I'm just not finding it.
For consolidating, I redirected a restore to a local drive then did a backup to a spare USB drive but it didn't work the best though it is better than nothing.
