Restore server backup on different PC - possible?


  • I'm trying to restore some files from server backup on different PC.

    Is this possible?

    Backup was done on Windows server 2016.

    I'm trying to restore some files on different PC, with Windows 10 Ent 2018.

    I typed this command: 

    D:\>wbadmin start recovery -version:06/11/2018-20:00 -itemtype:File -items:'e:\stuff' -backuptarget:f: -recoverytarget:D:

    Here is what I'm getting:

    wbadmin 1.0 - Backup command-line tool
    (C) Copyright 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    Warning:  The START RECOVERY command is not supported in this version of Windows.
    The operation ended before completion.

    Does it mean that recovery of single files or parts of backup can be done only on servers?
