Restoring file from backup exe 12.5 on new machine without catalogues
Posted on 2014-08-13
Our server crashed, it was using Backup Exec 12.5. I managed to save the Catalogues from the Syantec folder in Programs and also I have an external disk with the back-ups themselves, but I cannot get to restore . .
I have gone to a new PC and installed Backup Exec on it, transferred to Catalogues to the correct location (so they show) but when I try and restore although I can see the folder and file structure I cannot select them and they do not appear to carry any data.
Do I need to recreate Catalogues from the disk based media (to link) and if so how do I do it exactly? Or is there something I can do with the oldCatalogues I have now and link them in intelligently?
