Hi, a folder must be restored from a tape that has not been used in the rotation since January 15th.  I like to use that tape to restore the folder.  However, I'm not finding accurate dates for my restore process.  My experience with tape backup is limited.  So please provide a detailed explanation when referencing my snapshot.  Thanks!

Maybe your inventory is no longer holding information on data present on this tape.
Insert the tape into the drive and run a new "inventory" job on the tape,.
You can do that either by going to the Device tap and right click the tape, then choose inventory. or configure a new inventory job using the job wizard.

Then check again if you find the rate files to restore.

You need to actually catalog the tape if it's not showing up.  Put it in the tape drive, run an inventory.  Then run a catalog job.  The catalog job can take longer to do as it's reading all the tape details and putting them in the catalog file so you can search for them later.

Once cataloged you may go into the devices table and find the tape in the drive.  Right click the tape and choose restore data.  Then you can choose the data on that tape.

Yup.  I've found inventory/catalog a tape and doing a restore from that tape is the easiest way to find the data.  Good luck with your tape recovery.

Also, if and when I do restore, will I get an option to restore to alternate location?  And if no, how?

I discovered filed redirection. All is well.  The question mark may be due to lack of cataloging I guess.
