My backup server is having problems with its main disk and I need to replace. I was finally able to get a full backup of this machine but don't know how I am to restore the backup to a new disk without using Backup Exec 2012 on that machine. Should I install the new disk on that machine then do a restore to that new disk then pull the bad disk? This server also controls our WSUS updates so I am a bit concerned about losing this server. How should I go about doing this?

Doesn't the server has RAID array? Might be easier just to replace the drive and keep going? I know that wasn't your question just thought of it.

Another thing might be to use some sort of copy program that'll migrate everything from the old drive to a new one (ie Live linux CD and dd command)

I'd usually have a look through the documentation to the product you using for best practices as that'll usually give you the best results and save time and headaches later

You need to create a recovery disk.  Boot from this and point it to your full backup.

I found the issue with my disk was actually with a file that was corrupt and the system saw this as a disk error vs a file error. After removing that file the disk errors went away and my backups were successful.
