Hi everyone, it's been a long time since I've been here. I used to be a frequent lurker. I had an EX475.

Today I was going through old hard drives and found one that must have been in my MSS and contains the Data\DE\folders with all of the 4096.xx.dat files. There are some files I lost and I wonder if they are in any of these backup files. Is there a way to mount and view these files if I don't have my EX475 anymore?

Thanks in advance.
Danny

Short answer is no, without WHS there's no way to access the files in the client backup database. A couple people tried making tools to view the contents but I don't believe anyone was ever entirely successful. You also won't be able to access the contents unless you have the entire set of files that make up the database, so if you had multiple drives in your server but now only have this one drive with a subset of the files, it's useless.

Could I spin up a virtual machine with WHS and import that DE folder?
