New WHS - copy old backups across? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I've recently moved my WHS from an old dektop to a spare server I have. It's all up and running and backing up as I need it to.

    However, there are a couple of backups on the old WHS that I'd like to keep. Is there some way of copying them to the new WHS?

    Thanks

    Alex

  • A number of free programs will work.  Richcopy, robocopy, synctoy.  I'm using richcopy to move data between a WHS server and a WHS Vail server.

  • There's no way to copy an individual backup. You can use the Backup DataBase Backup (BDBB) add-in to copy your entire backup database to external storage, then load it onto your new server, however.
