    Zero length files

    Yes, I've been accessing Netware volume through Win2K Novell Client. If this is the case, I have to find another backup solution, as I can't change the setup I have. THat means back to Backup Exec or whatever they make now. thanks for your help Alex Pejcic
  2. I am runing 5.5 on Win2K Server, backing up another Novell Netware 3.12 server volume. The total backup size is about 5Gb and the drive I am using is Seagate 10/20 GB Internal EIDE. Everything seems to be working fine. I have no problems with scheduling and executing. I have 5 members of backup set marked Mon-Fri. Recycle backup starts at 1AM and it looks like it is backing up at incredible speed. It finishes the whole volume in about 15-20 minutes, then it proceeds with verification: Completed: 26660 files, 5.0Gb Performance: 297.0 MB/minute (353.0 copy, 256.3 compare) Duration 00:40:09 (00:5:46 idle/loading/preparing) However, when I try to restore the backup or it's part, all the files restored to the hard drive, either local or network, are ZERO LENGTH. I can see all the files, but they are 0 bytes long and ofcourse unusable: File "g:\Clients\Novell\32Unins\unc32.exe": appears incomplete File "g:\Clients\Novell\32Unins\unc33.exe": appears incomplete File "g:\Clients\Novell\32Unins\unc34.exe": appears incomplete File "g:\Clients\Novell\32Unins\u36.exe": appears incomplete ... etc THe tape drive is clean. There are no viruses and the tapes are fairly new. any ideas? regards, Alex Pejcic
