I an unable to do a backup that can used as a valid backup for a restore. I am running 2010 Vault workgroup, I have a 220gig Vault. I can do an automation script backup that I put on tape, but using the same backup I get a not a valid restore backup. If I go into ADSM and do it there it takes about 5 hours just to tell ve the valadation is missing some files and if I want to continue, then its over 10 hours or more to complete. The server is my bigest hangup as it is 7 years old and 3 gis of ram, so it is very slow.I know there is a way to manually move the data files and file store, I'm going from 2010 WG to 2013 WG.
This should all you the safety of having a valid backup prior to stepping from 2010 to 2011, then to 2013 or from 2010 to 2012 then to 2013.
