Server 2003 Backup problems


  • Running Windows Server 2003.  Have been using the Backup utility to make daily & weekly backups to Seagate external hard drive.  Tried to restore a file today and get the message that the requested backup file cannot be found.  The file looks like its there in the backup (I can click the check box next to it) but restore says it cannot be found.  i've tried different tapes and different files, and I know I have restored files before.  Help!!  I'm not connected to the internet on the server either.

  • Few question to get more clarity.

    1) Are you taking a System state backup?

    2) The restore location is same or different from original location?

    3) Are you trying to restore using restore only utility on a machine other than 2k3? What is the SP level of your machine?

    Also it will be great if you can provide NTBackup logs.
