reposted; Restore error: "The backup file contains unrecognized data and cannot be used"

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Budeci Cristian, Jun 24, 2004.

  1. I try to restore my SBS 2003 Premium after a disaster.

    I reinstalled the SBS and tried to restore my backuped files from my
    removable HDD. The backups were made automaticaly, daily, with error
    verification step. Now, when I try to restore the files, it returns me the
    message "The
    backup file contains unrecognized data and cannot be used". The single
    usable backup file is the one made one month earlier, manualy by ASR
    process, but is
    too old, and it doesn`t return my server to a functional state.

    Is there any way to verify and repair the ureconizable files? How could I
    protect in the future, since I had no error warning at the backup time that
    something went wrong?

    Is it any other way to repair my partialy demaged server, something just
    reinstalling the SBS over the demaged version, but keeping mee all the
    settings I have done in the configuration process?

    Thank you!
