Backup Exec - Restore from Tape Drive to a different Machine!

My server(windows 2003 small business) crashed and is no longer accessible. I have installed backup exec 11D on an XP pro. machine and installed tape drive too. I need to restore the backup from the tape drive to this XP machine and restore some folders. I am having problems with access denied information on the folders I need to restore.

This is a business critical situation and a quick and helpful response would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

ASKER

There was no encryption on the backup system. I can see the folders and files using the restore wizard, but get no option as to what location I am restoring to. Then the screen comes where I can perform tests. This is where it fails and informs of access denied.

Thank you 'Getsum Bloodlust', everything worked. Backup exec infact was searching for the remote server which was crashed. A redirection to a folder on the local machine clearly worked out.

Many thanks for your quick response Sir!
