Question about NTI Backup Now EZ Software

1 Answer

I originally downloaded NTI Backup Now EZ software from the Toshiba website to use with an external Toshiba hard drive I purchased and have been running both "File and Folders Backup" and "Complete System Backup". I recently had to re-install my Windows Vista operating system. I then re-installed the Backup Now EZ software, however, when I went to "Restore" my files and folders it says it cannot find them at their original location. When I use the Backup Now EZ "browse" button, none of the "NBF" files show up, even though I can locate them on the Toshiba f: drive using the "explore" feature.

    No...the Toshiba external drive is listed as "TOSHIBA EXT (F:)", just as it was before.

Hello bobdurack
I'm not shure this is the solution but it's a possibility : has the letter of your external Toshiba eventually changed ?

You have an issue - if my understanding is correct ' you are trying to restore your files, programs etc., to a new computer.

Backups are meant to restore the files and windows operating system etc. on the same computer the backup was created from. If you bought a new computer, it cannot do any restoration of the backup file from the hard drive.

if this is not the case, you need to provide more information for anyone to help.

Runtime error with EZ Backup restore


Did you try to reinstall the EZ software? perhaps you accidentally removed (a part of) a program.
Then try to restor the data again.

I purchased two NTI Backup Now EZ backup drives and have not been able to get either to backup anything off my Sony Vaio E w/Win 7. The system is 500G w/4G RAM.


You will have to contact the company directly. Each system is different enough that you will need their help troubleshooting the issues.

Toshina External Hard Drive backup files in


Which program did you create the backup with? You'll need to install a copy of that software on your new computer. Then you will let the software find the backup and restore it. This will only work if you used a file backup. Many backup programs do not restore to systems with different hardware (different CPU, hard drive, OS, etc.).

However, I don't know which software uses *. PFT, pfi or pfp extensions. PBF is the format for one of the older Paragon Backup software versions. Acronis uses *.TIB . For a list of many of the software extensions used for backups, see https://www.file-extensions.org/filetype/extension/name/backup-files .

Canvio drives used to include NTI BackupNow EZ software. However, I believe that NTI backups use BJF or NTI extensions. The installer for that is here: http://support.toshiba.com/sscontent?contentId=3044104 . To check for other software for your external drive, try looking up your drive at http://support.toshiba.com/support/home . The available drivers and software should be listed. Alternatively, check if the backup software installer is still on the external drive.

I hope this helps.

Maybe the restore function only works with the original piece of equipment. Ouch.

You might want to contact the manufacturer of the software to see if they have a fix or solution. Good luck!

Hi I'll briefly describe my problem I've an external HDD (Toshiba) with NTI Backup Now EZ software installed on it, and I used it to back up my files the problem is that I can't restore my files now...


You might need to get an older version of NTI Backup Now. I had the same issue. I was using Backup Now 4 which saved everything as .nbf.files. I downloaded a trial version of Backup Now 5.5 and tried to restore the files only to find .nbf files are not compatible with version 5.5!
I sent a rather facetious e-mail to NTI moaning about this issue and they sent me a trial version of version 4. If I were you, I'd do the same. http://www.nticorp.com/en/us/product/backup_now5.asp
All my .nbf files are now restored.
