  • There's no method of importing an old backup database, partially or in toto, into your server. If you have a complete backup of the old backup database, the Home Computer Backup and Restore technical brief tells you how to replace your current backup database with the old one. Please note that this is an unsupported operation; the information Microsoft has provided is to be used "at your own risk". 
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
