Re: Is recovery possible without index?

As others already responded, this is possible.

The best method will be to rebuild at least the media index Information (scanner -m) ... if you have time.

Then you can either …

  -  recover a whole save set (recover -S ssid) and get your files from here

  -  recover a subset (files/dirs) but you must know the exact full absolute path name like in this example:

        recover -S ssid -a absolute_path_name

Other options may be necessary - please see Command Line Reference for Details.


These rules apply to normal file system backups.

NDMP (and other) backups will need special treatments.
