You may have to Catalog the tape before running the restore job.

Best of luck.

Does anyone see a problem with uninstalling the software from the server and reinstalling it because now it won't even backup the server. Would I lose anything.

Are you using the BackupExec device driver for your drive or the OEM driver? If you are using the OEM driver, switch to the BackupExec driver.

Have you done a firmware update on your tape drive?

The software has been in use for the last 5 years through 3 drives DLT VS1. As far as the driver is concerned I have no idea. How do I look this up?

In BackupExec you can go to Tools > Wizards > Device Configuration Wizard
Or
In Windows Device Manager, you can right click on the device and select properties and the driver tab. If you want to change the driver select the update driver button.

You may want to check to see if there is a firmware update available for your drive. I had a similar issue caused by a update to BackupExec and the Fireware update fixed the problem.

In any case, I would do a backup to disk just to make sure you have some kind of backup running.
