Using server backup to migrate to Vail RRS feed

  • Question

  • I do an external backup of my WHS server to a USB drive. Would data migration to Vail not be doable by connecting that device to a Vail server and doing a restore?

    Vail backups are stored as VHDs, while v1 backups are stored as individual files.  While you cannot "restore" a v1 backup to a Vail server (using the restore interface in the Dashboard), you should be able to attach the external drive to your Vail server and copy the files manually (although I haven't actually tried it myself).
