Question about NTI Backup Now EZ

1 Answer

I used a Toshiba 1/2 TB external drive with NTI Backup Now EZ software for some years and then the laptop crashed. After byuing a new one the happy moment when all could be restored never appeared. The files (both images and file/folder backups) are there (450 GB) - they appear in the browser tree of the NTI restore program - but the restore program do not let me select anything. It just tells that restore failed. Other users of the NTI software appear to have had the same problem (see e.g. http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-xp/nti-backupnow-ez/179520.html). Isn't there a fix from NTI so years of work can be recovered?

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!

SOURCE: I used the backup now

This might be one of those programs that must be installed in order to work. I would imagine that you must install the program and have it do a restore.
Some programs keep a record of the backup on the hard drive. When you upgraded, the record might have been destroyed. If this is true, your backup software will have a utility to rebuild the index of the backup so it will work.
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_b57a4ca77bce4177981a716bb3d932c6(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_37914be2a9c340639799c674a792b2dd(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Our computer died. I had backed up to Toshiba 1TB external hard drive using NTI backup now EZ. Trying to restore pics, programs etc to new computer. Getting error that says it can not find on on external...

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.

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.

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.
