Run a Scan on each tape set to scan all sessions and under options select to log all activity. The job log will contain the list of everything on the tape.

Yes, you can run a scan with log all activity to get detailed information of sessions residing on the tape. However, sometimes ARCserve goes not responding when you try to access the job log for the scan job.

Workaround : Identify the Job ID and go to x:\program files\ca\brightstor arcserve backup\log\caroot\
search for a log file which matches the Job ID and open it with text editor.

You can also get detail information of contents of the tape  through report writer, provided tape information is in database.

Note : you can run merge on tape to update the database.

If I had guided the client to a document which resolves his issue, then it should be a accepted solution and not a assisted solution.

If TheMast1 feels that it is a assisted solution, please state reasons for the same.
