NTBackup – The utility you can trust

NTBackup is a useful Backup File Repair utility which is fully utilized in operating systems like XP, 2003 and 2000. It is one of the safest tricks to make your data safe and prevent huge loss. By using NTBackup you can save your important data in an easier manner by following few simple steps. All files are stored with an extension called .bkf and are saved in file format called MTF.

Problem Pops Up

Many a times when you are on your way to restore BKF files by NTBackup, few error messages are displayed. These error messages interfere in the restoration process of backup files. Corruption of BKF files is the reason behind the appearance of such messages. Once an error message appears, the restoration process immediately comes to a halt which results in damage of BKF. Take an example, on domain controller (server with active directory service) with Windows Server 2003, when you are trying to recover data from BKF files following message appears:

“Backup Status
Operation: Backup
Active backup destination: File
Media name: "bkup_file.bkf created MM/DD/YYYY at HH:MM AM|PM"
NTDS has reported a VSS error 0x800423f0...”

What is VSS?

In Windows Operating System VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Server) varies in 64-bit version and 32-bit version. Different catalogs are used by BKF file. Also when it has been created through 32-bit VSS interface and requires a 32-bit backup tool which is VSS based for restoration. In this case if you try out the restoration of BKF file through 64-bit version of Windows, catalog gets corrupt and BKF file becomes inaccessible.

Why Corruption?

For a good restoration in Windows Server 2003, all you require is database and log files on different storage drives or at similar disk volume. VSS error issue mentioned above takes normally place when single volume (DIT or Log) is present on system drive. The end result is corruption of BKF and which in turn causes failure of restoration process. Now, the obvious question which immediately strikes one’s mind is how to restore data from these corrupt BKF files? All you need is a powerful recovery tool in order to access and restore data from BKF files.
