Veritas 9 Backup Tapes restore from erase

   I had done a quick erase on a few tapes that weren't being used. My boss asked if I could get that information back. Is it possible without hiring someone?

Hello,

I have Veritas Backup Exec running on my server, we use 40 GB HP DLT tapes, I personally believe
you should bring someone in to try and see if he/she can recover anything, I have been unsuccessful at
recovering anything that was overwritten on my DLT tapes, but before you bring someone in, you might
want to check if there are programs on the internet that try and recover this kind of information, I don't
know of any for backup tapes, but I know of some for hard drives, it doesn't hurt to check before calling,
I will look as well, if I find anything, I will post it here.

Thanks,

By the way, I didn't see the "quick" up there, if you did a quick erase, than the files should
still be there, there's hope!!, I still would suggest that you look for the program that I
mentioned above before you call anyone in!

Thanks,

Fadi

Ouch =)
Veritas writes an indicator at the beginning of the media and the contents of the media are made inaccessible.

You can try to import tapes, and then catalog the tapes, if that doesn't work you can try this:
