        Yes, upgrading software as per BE documentation will ensure that you can restore old backup data.

  • About licensing :
    You cannot use BE2012 license on BE20. 

    You will need to renew maintenance or purchase new license. 
    Please reach out to your local Veritas reseller for the best possible solution.
