a full backup of our server data takes up 16GB. However, when I look at where Kerio stores its data, it's closer to 27GB. OK, I suppose that's because the backup is zip-compressed.

But, in any case, how can I check that the backup is in fact working correctly? Should I just install the Kerio Connect installer as a demo, and see if it takes the backup files?
Any other ideas?

(We're still running Kerio Mailserver 6.7.0 on Mac OS X 10.4.11, and I want to make sure I have a working backup before upgrading. I've also cloned the startup disk to another partition to be sure.)

Install Kerio Connect trial to another computer and then use kmsrecover tool to run full restore over it. This test does not mess your production environment or backups.
