tips to restore a lost file

NTBackup tool provided in Windows NT based operating systems (Windows Vista, XP, 2003 and 2000) enables you to create a Microsoft Backup File (BKF) for your critical data. You can easily restore your lost data from BKF file in case of any data loss. However, restoring the BKF file on a domain controller might result in an error message. A domain controller is a server that has Active Directory service installed and runs a version of Windows Server 2008, 2003, 2000 or NT Server operating system. The BKF restoration primarily fails due to BKF file corruption. In such situations, you need to repair your corrupted BKF file by using advanced bkf repair tools.

As a practical scenario, when you attempt to restore backup from a BKF file on the domain controller running Windows Server 2003, you encounter the below error message:
“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...”
The restoration process halts after the above error message appears.

The restoration in Windows Server 2003 works only when the operating system, the log files and the database either are all on same disk volume or all are on different storage drives. However, the above issue mainly occurs when one volume (Log or DIT) is on the system drive. It results into BKF file corruption and thus the restoration fails.


The BKF file could not be restored after the occurrence of the above error message. To resolve the above error and access the data saved in corrupted BKF file, you will need to repair it by using powerful MS Backup Recovery tools. Such MS Backup Recovery utilities use high end scanning algorithms for scanning and repairing corrupted BKF files. These BKF repair tools extract and reinstate all the required information from a corrupted BKF file of any size. Such BKF repair tools serve as easy to understand applications with largely graphical and user-friendly interface. These repair utilities also provide you an alternative to save your repaired BKF files at default or user specified location.
