Can't open backup file.

By sweet_german ·
Tags: Off Topic
I had a backup file (still I have it but useless) which is now no more useful. Last month around 60-70 GB of data deleted by me accidentally. It was really no issue for me as I backed up those data. I went for a holiday trip and it was last week when I came back. I tried to restore that deleted data from my backup file but just couldn't. In fact I couldn't open my backup file. First I thought it is corruption but I'm not getting any error message. Is it really corruption. If it is then how shall I fix it? I need my backup file. Please help.

Repair your backup file and restore your data.

by Astute guy In reply to Can't open backup file.

Hi, first let me tell you, when a backup file gets corrupted it is not at all necessary that error will have to be received. Sometimes there can be error and sometimes not. If you can't open your backup file that means it is corrupted. And all you need to do, just repair it. Where you have created your backup file? What I mean is, inside the system or some external storage media?

You have only one option to repair your corrupt backup file. By using third party software tool. There is no one can help you to repair your corrupt backup. You can use advanced BKF recovery tool from sysinfotools. It will surely help you.

There is also some other good tools.

I have used a good BKF repair software which quickly restores all the data from damaged BKF files. It can easily repair data from all backups created using ntbackup.exe utility and backup files created using Backup Exec by VERITAS tool, For more information about this tool visit
