Which folder to copy data from an external backup of shares RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Scenario: backed up all shares to an external drive. I now want to restore or rather COPY all the data to a NAS box (as step in a test migration to Vail).

    However, as external backups are incremental I have multiple top-level folders ordered by date. I assume the initial backup is the full one and subsequent folders contain the changes.


    Which folders should I copy? I do not want to use WHS to restore, just copy (actually using robocopy but that a separate issue) to a separate drive

  • Just like home computer backups, every server backup is effectively a full backup of whatever shares you've set your server to back up.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
