One-time backup does not appear as an option to Restore

I did a one-time back of 6 database of our Exchange server, after backup was completed, none of the databases have a restore date when this one-time backup was successfull. Backups were done via USB external drives, I can catalog and verify with no errors. Not sure why I do not get a Restore option to the date I did my one-time backup. Has anyone experienced this before or have a solution?.

I do not see any option to restore beyond our regular two weeks.

It could be possible that you have not selected a proper date range in the restore job.

Once you go under the restore job selection there is a "from" and a "to" date, make sure this is correctly selected.


Are you able to see the dates in the Storage tab under the USB drive in which your backup was done?
