  • Is it possible to copy Windows Server Backup files to a new hard drive? And same question about Windows SBS 2011 Backup.

    I would really appreciate if you could let me know.

  • Hi JB, 

    I recommend you use Robocopy GUI  or Robocopy Command line tool to move content from one place to other place.

    Also configure your backup settings in such away that to store data in desired path (new HDD) from next schedules on-wards.

  • I gave up on trying to copy this backup after hours of trying and rebuilt the server from scratch.
