Hi,
can be many things - first guess - when using "fromnode" option, then you need the "access" was set before (your node needs permissions to access the other node data). Better way is to use "virtualnodename" when starting the client or even change the nodename (temporarily) in the dsm.opt - you will need the node's password - but being a class=system level admin helps here as well ...
A note - the output provided does not show anything was backed up for C:\SWIFT\BAT ... all I can see is an F: drive (not saying it is not there - but these few lines do not confirm it).
Hope it helps
Harry

If the machine name you are restoring on is different than the machine the backup was done on, need to provide the filespace name instead of the drive letter.

dsmc restore {\\saa01\c$}\SWIFT\BAT\*" O:\Test_restore\

And I agree with Harry, much easier to use virtualnodename
