I am trying to restore a backup that was made with Cobian 9. I can complete the decryption process, but when it gets to using the Decompressor, after I choose the file to be decompressed, it prompts me for a .volumes file that is nowhere to be found.

The Cobiansoft forums have one entry posting this question, and one admin responding that it doesn't require a .volumes file.

The sequence is as follows. Open Decompressor, select the compressed .7z archive, provide it with a destination for the decompressed files, and it begins. After several seconds a file request window opens requesting a file name of type -volumes of which no files of that type exist on my machine, or anywhere else I can find.

At that point I either enjoy the nicely-constructed file-request window, or I cancel out I receive an error in the log stating that it cannot find a file with the name of the original .7z archive, even though it never allowed me to select it in the first place as it is not a .volume file.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
