When attempting to import a staged backup using the BackupImportUtil you get an error similar to the one below:


Certain errors that may be ignored are faulting an otherwise acceptable staged import. We are currently investigating the root cause of these errors and working to implement fixes to the release version of the Backup Import Utility. Certain files affected by these errors will be re-transmitted as "full" on the next backup to the storage server.


Download and save the file "Import14.exe" to the same folder your BackupServer.exe file is located in (Default is "C:\Program Files\NovaBACKUP Storage Server\"). This tool is a command-line-only tool and must be run from an Administrative Command Prompt in order to function. The syntax is as follows:

"import14.exe" stageddatamigration -s "" -u

"Import14.exe" stageddatamigration -s "C:\staged\base" -u test-nate
