Veeam Backup - folder deleted

#1 Post by whyling »

I have a question. I am new in this forum, but needs serious help to recover a deleted folder.
Out backup is saved on QNAP, and the folder (with all the files .VBM, .VBK and .VIB) is placed.
Is it about a year of backup.

I have made an separate array for restoring. I have tried PhotoRec to recover, but it only finds a lot of jpg and other stuff - that I don't mean ever has been on the backup share.. Maybe the reading of the files is wrong.
I tried to define my own files search, but it returns with a empty string..

What can I do to recover this data??

Best regards,
