I am running Symantec BE and I have some tapes that are not in my Catalog list and I  am trying to restore data from the tapes . What I did was load my tapes/Inventory the taps/select the library/then the lot the tape is in next I right click the selected restore but I got a message that read (The selected media was not found in the catalogs. You must first catalog the media if you want to use the restore option.)  Next I went back in then select catalog media then in the Job Monitor menu I see that it completed but I’m not sure where to go to recover the data. I tried to find a step by step process to do this but no luck or is there a better way to do this?
Thanks

If you click restore, you'll see a box with the date in it. Replace the year with 1990 (or some such), hit the tab key and all your previous backed up sessions should appear
