restore

I have a backup external drive from 2010 that contains files I would like to restore.   It has a copy of Symantec backup on it, but I cannot install it as I get a message the program does not like Windows 7.   The backup files have an extension V2i.  How do I recover the files?

These files are produced by

These files are produced by Symantec System Recovery, not Backup Exec.  I have moved your discussion to the correct forum.

It could be that the version of your program does not support Windows 7.  You may need to try WinXP.

Re: restore

You could probably install the latest version (trial) and use that to restore:
