  • backup completed, but no data?

    Environment is an SBS 2008 server.

    According to the Windows Backup, backups have been completing every day for at least the past week. If I look at any specific backup, it shows a relevant volume of data backed up, to the correct single disk that's currently attached.

    It shows the most recent backup as being 68GB.

    If I look at the disk itself, it shows about 400GB in use.
    If I mount the disk and browse the folders, it shows only a single WindowsBackup folder, with only the most recent backup data in it. There is a VHD file of approx 300GB in here though.


    If I run ntdsutil snapshot ; list snapshots (http://blogs.technet.com/b/11/archiv...08-server.aspx)

    Then the only snapshots it lists are from the 5th.
    No snapshots found.

    so.. i guess my question is - where has the backed up data gone from, say, Friday, and why can't I restore from it ?

    Have you tried using the Backup/Restore utility to restore the relevant data instead of mountiung the VHD?
    TIA
