Hello Everyone,

I want to know specific folder backup say " TEST folder" size prior starting restore. I have see netbackup can only give a file size but not entire folder or directory size. Any walk-around?

Depends on how the backup was done and if you have Opscenter Analytics.

If the job was multistreamed with several backup selections each having a their own stream and this folder was one of those streams, you could look at the backup job size in OpsCenter depending on how old the backup was.

There is no direct way to find the folder size, unless you find a way to list all the files inside the folder and calculate the total size of all files , may be using script for the command bplist.

there was a Idea submitted years ago( when netbackup was Syamtec Netbackup), it never took off..
