Restore v1 backup to v2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    If you backup files in WHS v1, can you then plug the drive in to a WHS v2 box and restore the contents?

    (I guess if it's just natively readable by the OS then you just copy it rather 'restoring' it.)

  • If you use the Shared Folders backup feature in WHSv1, it backs the files up as files. Nothing special about it. You can then connect that external hard drive to Vail and copy everything to the Vail server.

    There is no automation in this build of Vail, and Microsoft is not saying anything about migration or upgrade paths at this time.
