[MERGED] Use Old Version Backups

Post by mikeyjm26 »

Hello all,

need some advice using V6.5 backups in V7. I have created a new backup server and copied over and imported the old backups but how do I get Veeam to continue using the old backup files without creating a new folder for the backups.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

TIA

Mikey

Michael, you need to map your jobs to existing backup files, please review this topic for instructions. Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply, should I remove the backups I have copied over and point the new jobs to the original backups?

TIA

You can use the procedure with any set of backups (either stored in the original repository or copied over to the new location).
