WBAdmin to restore NTBackup files? If not how can I restore NTBackup files to my new Win 2008 R2 server? We need the files and I do not want to restore them elsewhere and copy them as this will double my time line

Software/Hardware used:
WBAdmin, Windows Server 2008 R2, NTBackup, Windows Server standard 2003 R2

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The wbadmin command replaces the ntbackup command that was released with previous versions of Windows.
You cannot recover backups that you created with ntbackup by using wbadmin. However, a version of ntbackup is available as a download for Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows 7 users who want to recover backups that they created using ntbackup. This downloadable version of ntbackup enables you to perform recoveries only of legacy backups.
Both the backups differ in structure , WBA does a image file type backup and a block level bckup , hence the incompatibility .

Good Luck !
