I apologize if this was posted before, but I've spent all last week looking for a solution without success. I have a WS2012 essentials running with 3 PCs connected and joined to the domain a Win7 (32bits), win7 (64) and win8. I have a full back up of
all clients store on the network drives on the server folder. Las week my server crashed and I had to recover which I did without a problem since I have a separate hard drive for server backup. After I recover the server with same set up, same domain name,
and kept the same client names I am unable to recover the client from the backups. I have to recover some files from a backup on a client (win7(32bits)) but after I reconnected all the machines back to the domain non of the backups show up on the clients.
I have 38gbs of data that I need to recover but no way of reading the backups. am I missing something here?
I did a recovery from the server back up drive I had. I had to uninstall the windows server 2012 connector on all the clients and re-install it to connect the PC back to the server because after a full server restore the clients no longer were able to communicate
with the server. Now the client backups do not show up on the machines any more. I have the folder with all of the prior client backups but no way to read them now even though I kept everything the same before the re-store.
