Import Jobs back from backup copy?

Veeam Logoby Morat » Mon Jan 23, 2017 12:29 pm

Hi. I've had a failure on the hardware we use as a backup repository. Luckily I've got a backup copy job in place so I have copies on another piece of hardware.
Is there a way to effectively run the copy job in reverse?
Just to complicate matters I have 12 copies on the copy target whereas I had 14 on the backup target. Will I be able to recreate the backup job or should I just start from scratch?

Sorry, I'm running Veeam9.0 and this is VMWare environment.

Hi Morat,

Are you asking if it is possible to restore source backups from backup copies and then use them to continue your backup job? Then the answer is no, you can’t, however, you can manually copy BCJ chain to the source and perform mapping of your backup job to it.
