Restore backups from pre-release version

Veeam Logoby CedricD » Wed May 06, 2015 11:43 am

Hi,

I want to restore a backup taken with the beta version of Veeam Endpoint Backup.
I'm getting the error: Restoring backups created with pre-release versions of Veeam Endpoint Backup is not supported.
Can I somewhere download the beta version? Or is there a workaround for this?
I only need to restore a few files. Not the whole computer.

Thanks!

Hello Cedric,
I've sent you a PM with the download link. Please, consider using the BETA only for restore purposes since it’s not supported any longer. Thanks.

I hate hijacking this thread, but i get the same message.

[TBD] Endpoint Beta version backups are not supported. Please move or remove them from target manually before you can proceed.

Installed version 1.0.0.1921

Shared a link with you via PM. Have a good restore and do not forget to replace the BETA code with GA once your files are resorted.

Worked like a charm - after I followed the guide to manually remove all remains of previous Endpoint installations here ( post143558.html?hilit=uninstall#p143558 )

Thanks - and GA is being installed again, as soon as I have all the necessary files from the old backup. Thanks again for your help.

Dima,
I'm in the same boat. All my backups were done with Beta. Machine took a nose dive, went to restore, but get "Restoring backups created with pre-release versions of Veeam Endpoint Backup is not supported" I don't have a copy of the beta anymore. What are my options?

Joe,

Sent me a PM with your email address and I'll get you hooked up... (Sounds like a cheesy line out of a bad movie :-))
