The dump engine enables you to recover all the information that you backed up.

The dump engine can recover the following data:

You can restore data from previous versions of Data ONTAP using the dump engine. If you want to perform an incremental restore to a storage system running Data ONTAP 6.2 or later using data backed up from a storage system running a version of Data ONTAP earlier than 6.2, you can do one of the following:

Performing a level 0 restore, upgrading Data ONTAP software, and then performing incremental restores will not restore the incremental backups because the data is in a different format from the level 0 restore. In such a case, you have to repeat the level 0 restore before you can restore incremental backups.
