Thanks for writing. I did have a ss backup, that I thought was good.
It was taken two days ago when the system was still booting normally,
but was freezing occasionally. Upon restoring, the server gets to the
Windows splash screen, and the "meter" that runs across goes on for 5
seconds or so and then stops moving entirely. I have tried this with
several different pcs, including the original box, with a new hd. I do
also have a ss that I took with backupexec. I could try that, but I
have never done it. ntbackup will not use that one. I guess I have to
install backup exec on the destination box, then try to recover?
