Hi

as long as the tape is good and the OS is the same. I.e if you have backed up using netbackup on a windows OS you can merge that tape on a windows OS
and restore the data. As a matter of fact you can scan the tape to list its contents and determine if restoring the data would be of any help. Otherwise why would you need data on a tape which we are not aware when it was backedup.

If you are asking can you restore or not then i would say yes, provided the tape is readable. You cannot use the same on a backupexec server running on unix or netware. You need to try restoring the tape on a windows server only.
