restoring backup from external harddrive

Post by Gavlow »

Hi Guys - I have been backing up to an external hard drive on a network. The hard drive in my laptop (which I was backing up) has just been replaced. I loaded Bu4all back onto the laptop and then went to restore but it is telling me there is nothing to restore. How do I tell it to restore the mirror backup on my external drive onto the laptop?? Tried the online help without success. I am running bup4all lite in that laptop Thanks

On the computer where you installed Backup4all, please open the .bkc catalog file from destination.
The backup job will be recreated in Backup4all. Press Restore and select a location for restore.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
