Browsing tape drives

How do you browse a tape media made with Veritas? We use Veritas but have never had need of recovering anything until recently. I would feel a lot happier if I could just put in a tape, and browse it and pick up the document I want, rather going through a complicated restore procedure. I find Veritas is fat too detailed for our companies needs.

It possible to use a tape drive like a disk, where you can just copy, drag and drop?

Veritas...what?
Veritas NT Backup
Veritas Netbackup
Veritas Backup Exec
? :o)

The procedure is pretty much the same - and I'll assume you mean Backup Exec, as that seems to be one of the more-used products...

You should have a Restore tab (may differ on the actual version - but I've used it from 6.x to 9.x and it didn't change drastically) - then you'll need to locate the date that the backup was completed on, and yes, you should have a drop down to simply navigate to the single file/folder that you'd like restored.  Check the box next to it, and then click Actions/Restore.  Make sure the tape is in the drive/library.

Good luck!

Oh we're ok Sir Bounty. I'm just stuck by the fact that I've finished work and it's Easter holidays so I can't look at your suggestion just yet. Will come back to you on this next week.

Thanks for the help!
