I use  ARCServe r11.1  in windows 2000 server and single DLT drive , I am trying to restore by session, but when I select the session it doesn't show anything. I believe it's because the backup to this tape wasn't done on this DLT drive, the tape was backedup to in a different tape library.
How do I make this DLT drive shows the content of the tape, though it sees the tape and the ID.

thanks

If my memory serves me correctly, you can view its sessions the same place as you format/re-tension the tape. Double-clicking on the tape would show some tape structure and you have to navigate your way through.

sorry I can't see anything ...

in the sessions, the tapes that have been backedup to with this tape device they showup with their contents(it's kind of catalog)
even if the tape is not inserted, but there is a catalog that holds the history of the tapes.
but if I put a tape that has been backed up to from another device to this tape device, it doesn't catalog it.

I know in Backupexec there is a way to catalog a tape but I don't know this option in Arcserve.

I fixed it.

I had to Merge. but I had to highlight the tape name then go to Utilities/Merge.
What I was doing is Clicking on Merge without highlighting the tape name.
