Windows Server Backup

When using the Windows Server Backup with Azure Data Recovery and looking to recover my files, I found that the date timestamp on the actual file is showing the folder (in which it resides) date timestamp and not the actual file timestamp I am trying to recover.  This results in all my backup files across 5 days to all show the same timestamp when in fact each day the file date timestamp is current.

I tried restoring my file and the folder is restored with the date timestamp shown, but the file is actually the current day of the backup.  This is a bit confusing.

Is this a known issue, or something unique in Server 2012R2?

Thank you,

Hi Rob,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. There was a bug with the restore operation with the Azure Backup and it has been taken care.

Let us know if you have any challenges. Also, I recommend you to upgrade the Backup Agent to (2.0.9022.0.)

Best Regards
