Backup Exec - unable to catalog DFS portion of backup

Hi. I am trying to catalog an older tape, and everything comes through ok, with the exception of the DFS portion - it just shows 0 and I am unable to expand. The catalog does go through all the gigabytes, and the DFS chunk is missing from the catalog totals.

What do I need to do?

Thank you

There is a specific way to configure BE for backing up DFS. If it was not configured correctly, then there may be no data on your tapes. It must be configured as explained in the link below. This is often a problem because people just configure it as they do their other backups.

Where are you browsing for the restore? If the backup was configured correctly, then the files to be restored must be selected from the "Shadow Copy Components." However, if the backup was not configured correctly, then this will not exist.
