If Im understanding what you wrote you are trying to run a restore from your backup drive
Go to Main >> Backup >> Configure Backup in cpanel WHM
and set to restore only
Then try to run your restore it should work fine!!

still not work, i dont know why? i tried to check from hdd and mounting it and there's still my data backup. i do step by step to restore the cpbackup, and i point restore only in backup configuration. but still the same problem, it's not work the box is empty.
and i tried this way to http://forum.ev1servers.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=38797, but still not work.

In your backup directory is there a .gz files or is it listed as user/

Do you have 2 HDs on your server, or just one HD? If you have one HD, did you assign /backup to a separate partition?

To some people knowledge=power
Its your right to ask what was done and for them to tell you, same if you had someone out to fix your car and they took the money off you and sais its fixed but im not telling you what i did. I have seen quite a few contractors try this one in the past on me/my customers and it dont work. You paid its your right to know what they did.
