I am trying to restore some data from a 4 and a half year old LTO backup tape that was backed up using either Backupexec 8 or backup exec 9. The server I am using is windows 2003 sp2 with backup exec 11d.
The catalog job fails with the following error
An inconsistency was encountered on the storage media in Q1.
V-79-57344-33994 - The data being read from the media is inconsistent.
If I rerun the catalog the same error occurs.
From looking at the catalog job log the tape contains several server's backups and the server (server 1) that I want to restore is listed as succesfully completed but the server that it fails on is the next item on the tape.
When I try to restore from this tape I can see server 1 that I need to restore and the different drives in the selection list. If I expand any of the drives I can see the backup with the correct date but when I click on this date backup exec freezes and crashes.
Any ideas as to how I can get the catalog to work correctly so I can restore this data?
