Restoring files from Windows Server Backup
Posted on 2016-09-23
I have SBS2011 server where all the files on it have been encrypted by Zepto virus.
So I can't open any of the files. Kaspersky said that they don't have any tool to decry-pt the files.
I have been doing Windows Server Backup on an external USB hard drive.
I wanted to start restoring process, but Kaspersky technician recommended that I wait for the hard drive scan is completed (I am currently running Kaspersky virus scan on SBS2011) and it may take hours.
So I am thinking about setting up Windows 2008 Server OS on a separate computer and perhaps try to restore files from the backup USB drive.
Since this computer (that I install W2008) does not have a record/log for all the backups done on the USB drive, how can I (1) check to see what has been backed up and (2) restore files from this USB hard drive to the local computer hard drive?
I personally prefer to restore files from backup ext. USB drive directly to SBS2011 server, if that is a good idea.
