Windows Server Backup does not recogznize Windows Image Backup

I am trying to perform a bare metal restore via Windows Server backup. I appear to have a complete backup but Windows Server Backup is saying that "The Specified remote shared folder does not contain any backup" when clearly it does.

I've even tried including the full path \10.0.0.5csservWindowsImagebackup and continue to get the error.

Has anyone else had any experience with this.



Try to copy this image folder to usb drive and then browse it from there with restore wizard.

You have to give the path to the parent folder of WindowsImageBackup folder.

E.g.: \

The directory contains WindowsImageBackup folder.

If still unable to access, make sure the network machine is accessible and you can do net use to the folder. From cmd prompt,

ping
net use \



I have tried to copy it to USB and have the same error. I am also able to ping and create a drive mapping via net use... but I am still getting the same error.

The backup appears to be complete.



A dumb question, are you browsing it from the same Windows DVD which was used to install it? It should be same version.



Didnt work.
