extract.exe with vrb files

Post by joergr » Jun 09, 2010 8:36 am

hello,

today i tried the extract.exe which went very well. but i wanted to give it another test by checking if it would be possible to restore a delta file (vrb) with extract.exe. now please check out this output (see all down):

as you can see all needed files are in the directory. the user in which the dos box is running is the admin.

why this error?

best regards,
Joerg

Hello, as per User Guide, extract.exe supports extracting full recovery files (VBK) only. Basically, when you need to store backups in long-term repository or off-site, it is full backup (VBK) file that you want to put on tape or external storage along with this tool, not VRB file (rollback file containing changes only).
