Hi All

I have 2 servers both with LTO4 drives, the live server has backup exec 12.5 and the SQL agent installed.

I need to restore this data to a server that has backup Exec 2010.

We put the take in and do an inventory and catolog, however when we try to do a restore we get the eror below. I would have though that 2010 would be backward compatible?

Please ensure there are no filters applied.

Missing selections for successfully cataloged media or a popup error occurs stating: "The selected media was not found in the catalogs. You must first catalog the media if you want to use it for restore operations."
