Backup Exec 11 can't read tape
Posted on 2009-02-19
I am attempting to restore a tape made with BE11, when reading in tape drive in another server, seemed to automatically change the media label, now I can't see the contents, I know that nothing was written to this tape since it was last backed up. Is there anyway I can get to read the data off this tape?
MS Backup (included with Server 2003) sees that this tape was last used on the date it was last backed up but says unrecognizable format. BE11 sees a media label which it assigned but when trying to catalog the job completes almost immediately and no data is visible.
Please help, this is very urgent, I would have assigned an even higher points score to this question if it were allowed.
