Inconsistency Error While Restoring Your Backup From A Bkf File The easiest way to recover from any kind of data loss is by restoring the data from the latest backup. NTBackup is the backup utility provided in Windows NT based operating systems to create Microsoft Backup Files (BKFs). Depending on the quantity of data, you can create your backup on one or more storage media. While creating backup on various storage devices provides lots of benefits, it can also corrupt the BKF file while restoration. In such situations, you need to use effective BKF File Repair applications that can completely repair and restore the data from corrupted BKF file.

As a practical example, when you attempt to restore a backup that is maintained on several tapes, the restoration may not be performed. The NTBackup utility firstly requests tape 1; eject tape 1 and then request tape 1 again. You may then encounter the below error message:
Error: An inconsistency was encountered on the requested media.?

The main cause for the occurrence of the above error message is the returning of an incorrect value when the tapes were changed. This causes NTBackup to incorrectly identify the tape it requested. The error message can also occur when NTBackup tool is unable to recognize the corrupted BKF file. The corruption in BKF file can occur due to CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) errors, software faults, virus infection and more.
To resolve the above problem and access the BKF file, you need to follow these steps:
1. Scan the storage media with an updated Antivirus software.
2. Apply Hotfix Solution by using these steps:
? Install the latest service pack for Windows 2000
? After installing the latest service pack, you need to apply the Hotfix solution provided by Microsoft.
? Restart your computer system after applying the Hotfix solution
If you still encounter the same error message while restoration, then you need to repair the corrupted BKF file by using advanced bkf repair file tools. Such Microsoft Backup File Repair tools employ powerful scanning algorithms to perform comprehensive scan and repair of the corrupted BKF files. Such repair utilities extract and reinstate all the necessary data from the corrupted BKF files of any size.
