Windows Server 2008 backup - can't see backup during complete computer restore
Posted on 2014-10-26
I have a win 2008 standard server. I have a windows server backup on a usb hard drive. I am reinstalling from the dvd.
When I get to the point where I select complete pc restore the tool cannot locate the backup. During the load drivers step I can see the usb drive with the backup. Yesterday when i checked the backup status it was all green.
At this point I am installing windows from the dvd and hoping that I will be able to recover once that is done. But I am at a loss as to why windows couldn't find the backup initially.
Thanks in advanced for any insight on this issue. I have checked that only one machine name folder is inside the WindowsImageBackup folder and that that is in the root of the hard drive.
