Restore Using Backup Exec | Backup Exec Restore


Backup Exec by Symantec is a robust software solution that stores enterprise files across a network. The software has a graphical user interface that allows administrators to easily restore files that are corrupted or accidentally deleted. Using Backup Exec to restore files takes only a few steps. Restoring from Backup Exec means you have already performed a backup and have stored files on the desired media. Backup Exec automatically backs up files and directories configured in the program. This example assumes that you have the software installed and have already performed regular backups.

Instructions







    • 1
      Insert the media used for backup. This media is the same disk or tape drive that has the stored backup files. If you use a tape backup, insert it into the drive. Backup Exec also allows you to use a hard drive, so this step can be skipped if the media you use is not portable.
