I would like to know if and how it´s possible to browse the contents of a LTO 3 tape that was used a few months ago. We are using Symantec Backup Exec 2010, it´s a brand new server and install so this tape hasn´t been cataloged in this new server. It´s was actually created in a previous version of Backup Exec.

I just need to see the data that´s in it.

Thanks

In BE, you go to Tools, Devuce and Media Operations, Inventory. Point to the drive containing the tape and it will inventory the backup file. After that's done, you should be able to view the backup file contents.

After inventory, I just needed to catalog the media, then going to the Restore option I was able to see the data.

Thanks for the fast reply!
