Recreating a deleted backup-to-disk file

If you deleted a backup-to-disk file from Backup Exec, but did not use Windows Explorer to delete the file from the disk, you can recreate it by running Inventory.

To recreate a backup-to-disk file

  1. On the navigation bar, click Devices.

  2. Expand the icon for the computer where the backup-to-disk folder is located.

  3. Select the folder where the backup-to-disk file was located before you deleted it.

  4. Under Media Tasks in the task pane, select Inventory and create and run an inventory job.

    The backup-to-disk file appears on the results pane when the inventory job completes.
