Data Protector Express 4.00 SP1 - recovering a file from a tape backup

Hi there,

I am afraid I have been caught out by HP's Data Protector Express V4 SP1 software. Bascially every w/e I run a full backup using tape sets 1 to 6 (6 weekly rotar), each tape set consists of 2 tapes. I would like to recover a file from from tape set 5 (which was created 3 weeks ago) but I cannot fathom how to say to this software "load this tape and recover from this file".

I have looked at the Restore Specific wizard but it only seems to understand details of the last backup that I done (which was last night).

If anyone out there could be kind enough to send me some instructions on how to recover a file from a specific backup tape made in the past I would be very grateful.

Many thanks in advance,
Michael

Hi everybody,

I seem to have solved it now, in the Restore Specific Wizard there is an icon on the toolbar to select a specific version for a file to restore.

Many thanks,
Michael
