Checking restored files

Once a file has been restored, you can use the dir or type command to make sure the file was restored properly.

Compatibility with previous versions of backup

The Windows NT restore command can restore files that were backed up by using any previous version of the MS-DOS backup command.

Restore exit codes

The following list shows each exit code and a brief description of its meaning:

Restore successfully restored the file or files.
Restore could not find the files to restore.
The user pressed CTRL+C to stop the restoring operation.
Restore stopped because of an error.

You can use the errorlevel parameter on the if command line in a batch program to process exit codes returned by restore.

Listing the names of backed-up files

Use the /d switch to see a list of the backed up files. If you specify filename with the /d switch, restore displays a list of the backed up files that match the name you specify. If you use the /d switch, restore does not restore any files.
