Back up

My question is- If I back my server 2000 up onto a external hard drive can I then hook that external hard drive up directly to my workstation and access the files that I backed up onto it?

Will depend upon the software that you use to backup. if you just copy the data and then connect the drive to you workstation then yes you can.

if you are using some specific software to backup then normally you require that software to restore as the software. like veritas.

Not directly. you will require to restore them using Ntbackup to some location and then you will be able to access.

Ok so if I just copy the C: drive to my external hard drive would I then be able to access the files and if I take that route would I then be able to move that copied drive back onto my new server?
