  • ntbackup problem

    So I have a server under Windows Server 2003, and 20 work stations under win xp pro. on the server I have two hard, one with Windows and the second hard disk with data. the users have mapped this hard with data. I designed the windows with a daily ntbackup incremental backups, but when i restore data, there are not files, there are only folders. Can someone tell why this is happening? Then I constructed a daily incremental backup and weekend normal backup, and for these two jobs are in Task Scheduler there are two tasks and one file BFK in which are stored the normal and incremental backup. andybody tell me how to configure ntbackup for daily incremental back and that there are no empty folders and a weekly normal backup?
    thanks

    Have you reviewed the backup logs?
    Basically, create two scheduled tasks in NTBackup, one for the incrementals (btw, differential is better, IMHO) and one for full. Check the file sizes for each and do test restores to make sure all is OK, recreating the tasks if problems.

    What are you backing up TO?

        How do you backup only Word and Excel files -- explain the process you are using as probably something has gone wrong with this

        2nd attempt, what are you backing up TO?

                Ok, you are backing up to F drive.
                Where is F drive, on the Server?
                What is F drive? An internal or external HDD?
                Do you have a drive rotation or do you use the same HDD (or tape)?
                How much data do you need to backup?
                1 1 was a racehorse.
                2 2 was 1 2.
                1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
                2 2 1 1 2

                  This is probably really simple.

                  You have selected to backup "Everyone's Document and Settings" Folders.

                  Based on your initial post I am assuming this is not a Terminal Server and just a File Server. If this is true then the files will not be in the "Documents and Settings" folder structure.

                  If you have a share setup (Perhaps D:\Data or something similiar) just backup that folder and call it a day.

                  ----

                  The Document's and Settings option is intended for actual logged in accounts and not file shares (c:\Documents and Settings).
