RESTORE Hangs When Trying to Restore OS/2 Backup Disk PSS ID Number: Q58082 Article last modified on 02-02-1993 PSS database name: O_MSDOS



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft MS-DOS operating system version 4.01


After doing a BACKUP under OS/2 Version 1.10, the MS-DOS Version 4.01 RESTORE utility will hang when trying to restore the files.

This problem occurs because there is no backward compatibility from OS/2 to MS-DOS. At this time, Microsoft does not plan to make any changes to the way RESTORE works in MS-DOS Version 4.01.

However, the OS/2 Version 1.10 RESTORE utility will work with MS-DOS Version 4.01 backed-up files.
