missing first vib file

Post by underflow »

case id 05963648
Good day
job settings: 14 restore points
I have vbm, vbk and 13 vib files.
when I try to restore some data I could restore only full backup.
all increment point failed to restore it says some erorr occured
when I look at vbm file via notepad I can see 15 entries for <storage id> and <point id>. One of them (the first vib) is missing.
it is missing and on local share and on spare remote place (it syncs via rclone)
vbk, vbm and last vib file are modified on 18 of march.
Looks like last merging was successful (since full backup is works) but for some reason restore points refers on first vib which is absent

is it any chance to repare vib chain?

Welcome to the forum.
The backup chain cannot be repaired if a VIB file is missing.

You need to start a new chain with a new full backup. ... tml?ver=60
