If you encounter problems when trying to get NTBackup.exe to restore a file that entirely resides on the last tape of a multiple tape data set, try turning off the Use fast file restore option:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Using REG.EXE, built into Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and later operating systems, or installed from the Windows 2000 Support Tools, type the following command and press Enter:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Ntbackup\Backup Engine" /V "Use fast file restore" /F /D 0
3. Rerun the restore operation using NTBackup.exe.

3. Re-enable Fast File Restore using:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Ntbackup\Backup Engine" /V "Use fast file restore" /F /D 1
