Windows 2003 Server backup problem

Posted on 2005-04-21

I have a Windows 2003 Server.  I am using the Backup Utility program to backup files from hard drive.  I am able to backup the files manually, but when I try to backup using a scheduled backup a problem occurs.  The problem is that I can not retrieve my files from the backup tape.  I look at the report and it says that it has backed up the files successfully.  But when I try to retrieve the files from the backup tape, an error box message appears which says :

Catalog Error

This set can not be catalogued because the media containing the catalog data is missing.

Does anyone have any ideas why?

    Does this backup job span across more than one tapes? The catalog normally is stored on just one of these tapes ( with the windows backup utility I don't know which one this is, either the first or last one. Try using the other tape and then catalog it.
