Hi folks,

I was doing some restores to a server when this occurred. I am using Backup Exec 8.6 and on the 3rd restore, the tape that I was using came up as Blank Media instead of the label of 4MM00006. Now I cant restore from the tape..

I know a little about mtfcheck.exe from the Win2K resource kit but not sure if it will fill the bill.

How can I get the correct tape label (4MM00006) back on the tape so I can continue the restore I need to do?
And I really do need help FAST on this!

Thanks,
Russ

Just try Renaming it in Veritas Backup Exec. Under the Media Tab go to all Media and rename the Media to the original name Then Catalog the Tape. Or to play it safe give it a new name and then Catalog the Tape, this should allow you to see whats acctually on the tape.
