NTBACKUP Restore Option
Posted on 2006-03-20
I'm running Windows 2000 Server with 4mm tapes and an Archive Python SCSI Tape drive. Previously someone here ran a backup and I take it the backup exceeded the amount of space on the tape, 20GB. None the less, a second tape was not put in and the backup was simply cancelled at the point that it had exceeded the tape. So now there's one tape with 20GB or so worth of files on it.
I need a file off that tape and I tried to do a restore, but it sits on "Loading set list" for a while and then pops up a message telling me to put in media #2. I don't have media #2 and there is no media #2. So I have to click cancel and then I get a message telling me that the media was not mounted. How do I get around this? I need a specific Excel file off the tape.
