Hello,

No, B&R does not provide compatibility with backups made by a 3-rd party software, so you will not be able to restore from these backups directly using any B&R version.

Thus, there are two options:
  • Keep your 3rd-party backup solution for a time period following your retention policies while using B&R for new backups
  • Make a re-backup, as you mentioned
Thanks
