Performing a Restore Using NT Backup Loading the Catalog of Files for Individual Backup Sets

If you do not want to restore an entire tape, you must load the tapes catalog to display a list of backup sets:

3. Click on the tape name to select it. 4. To load the tape catalog, either double-click the Catalog icon, double-click the tapes icon, or follow the path Operations Catalog. After searching the tape, a complete list of backup sets is displayed in the Tapes window. The question marks (?) displayed in the icons indicates that their individual catalogs have not been loaded.

Loading the Catalog of Files for Individual Backup Sets


If you want to restore an entire backup set or tape, you can proceed to the next section. If you need to restore individual files, you will need to find out which files are in each backup set. The following steps explain how to load a catalog of files for a specific backup set. 1. Click on the backup-set name to select it (for example, C:). 2. To load the catalog, either doubleclick the Catalog icon, double-click the tapes icon, or follow the path Operations Catalog. After the catalog is loaded, the question mark for that set is changed into a plus (+) sign. 3. A complete list of directories and files in the backup set is displayed.
