Windws SBS restore from backup - why only the most recent image avail?
Posted on 2014-02-11
I'm stumped by a restore process from backup.
Using the built-in server backup in SBS 2011 (also happens in WHS 2011), I've made several system image backups. For example, I'll backup on 1/1/2014, 1/2/2014, 1/3/2014.
But when I try to restore from these backups, I only see the most recent version of the system image backup (the one taken 1/3/2014), and not the other previous versions.
Here is my protocol:
1. I'll start the machine with the SBS 2011 (or WHS 2011) Install Disk.
2. I'll choose the second option (Repair, etc.)
3. The computer finds the backup image on the external HD, but again, it'll only list the most recent backup, and none of the earlier backup points.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
