It's normal for bareos mailing list and bugtrac system. Bareos is paid 
support oriented (even opesourced), so don't expect so much help from 
them - when they could get some money for that (paid support). For me it 
was too hostilie env: bareos mailing list or bug track system - so i 
opted out (i reported some bugs in their bugtrac system) and now i'm 
with bareos problems on my own.

First look at content of archive in that date, when you excpected that 
files should be there. I use BAT for that (even that tools fails in some 
cases) - i use: list files on job. You can use BAT for search files, but 
with bareos ver. 15 BAT is working worse.

Ten look careful, if you selected proper restore way (type of restore 
nad time frame). Maybe in selected time frame files where deleted ?
