How do I force a merge with a backup where I no longer have access to the original database? Here's how that happened:
I have a backup for a Windows computer I'll Backup1 which has a merge cycle of 14 incremental backups.
I had to do a full Windows reinstall of the Backup1 computer, the type where it creates a brand new Windows directory and you have to reinstall all your programs (yes, the worst kind).
After that was done, I then created a new Endpoint backup - Backup2.
I'd now like to archive Backup1 as a single merged backup rather than 14 different pieces. Is there a way to do this without having to do something painstakingly time consuming like doing a full volume restore of the old Windows, merging Backup1, then restoring the new Windows?
