We are restoring just the public folders database using Backup Exec 9.1.
The main EDB and STM files restored okay. However, the byte count has stalled and now there are tons of .IFS files in the database folder. 40-60 to be precise.
They appear to be rotating every few minutes, with incrementing names such as:
I am worried about doing anything, as this has taken over 7 hours to restore 70GB worth of public folders - plus another 4 hours doing this. Should I cancel the restore, should I try mounting the database manually, do nothing?
Note - although the database was mounted okay before we had the server crash (due to a failed disk) I am concerned that maybe the size of the database has fallen over the 75GB limit, which might be causing this?
- pub1.edb = 53.6GB
- pub1.stm = 24.79GB
Any suggestions on next steps?
EDIT - Restore has now been running for over 23 hours. Further note, there are 5 transaction log files in the temp folder, with
restore.env at 1KB.
