Have these backups been done with or without VSS? Depending on that will decide what your restore options are.
Restore to Network Drive/NFS-Mounted File System
Besides restoring/recovering/retrieving data to a client computer’s local drive, you can also restore/recover/retrieve data to a UNC path (Windows) or NFS-mounted file system (Unix). This is similar to a cross-computer restore/recovery except that:
* The restored/recovered data passes through the client computer to the mapped share/file system.
* The computer that hosts the share or mounted file system need not be another client within the CommCell.
All data restored/recovered/retrieved to the shared directory assumes the security attributes (i.e., permissions) of the parent directory.
On Windows computers, UNC path of a shared drive can be specified. (e.g., \\servername\sharename). (A drive letter associated with a mapped drive cannot be specified.) The Windows logon information for this shared drive must be added in the Advanced Restore options dialog box.
On Unix computers, clients with NFS mounted to another machine can restore to that mount. (Click the Browse button to see if the mount is visible.). UNC paths are not supported in Unix.
