We have alot of archived tapes going back a few years that contain alot of data on multiple tapes. They are on a mix of different media type LT02/3/4 for different sites and some backups are on one single tape whilst others are on multiple tapes depending on the size of data.
I wanted to know if there is a easy and efficient way to consolidate and move the data to LT06 tape. Essentially we are trying to reduce the numbers of archived backup tapes down to 1/2 onto the new media LT06.
we use Symantec Backup Exec software and some of these backups have been done using old Backup Exec version and we are now using latest version 2014 .
If there is a third party software to accomplish this, I happy to try that?
