AIT1 Sony SDX1-35C tape restores
Posted on 2008-10-18
I have about 211 AIT1 Sony SDX1-35C tapes that were backed up to using Backup Exec around 2001. My only task is to create a directory report of data written to each tape. I do not currently have a backup library/autoloader. Can anyone help me out with the questions below.
1.) Can anyone recommend and good AIT3, 2 or 1 autoloader/tape library? Ideally I would like to have say an AIT3 that is backward compatible to AIT1 media? I am thinking SCSI of course.
2.) Although the backups were written using Backup Exec, I am not sure it will create a directory report of the tapes contents after a catalog operation. I don't want to restore all the data to filesystem in order to create a directory report. Does anyone know of a piece of software, that will of course work with the library/auto loader from question 1.) that will catalog the tape contents and provide a report?
Thanks so much for any response.
