Is it possible to restore file from an ntbackup operation to another server and if so is this a security risk?

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

If all the servers are on the same network you can restore to any server. The security risk depends on what it is you are restoring. What type of file are we talking about? A document? A data base? A program? More details would be helpful. Thanks.

    NTBackup is completely safe and secure procedure feature of Windows. There is no risk if u take in same network or domain or workstation. Remember if u use Windows Server 2008, it supports WBADMIN instead of NTBackup !

    There is a risk. If you restore any file from one server to another server, and a different version of the same file exists in the destination server, it will be overwritten. This could be more or less serious depending on the file being restored, as Technochic stated.
