Hi,  You can just click on the restore tab and go through the restore wizard which will guide you through the restore.

Please take a look at the videos on the Backup Exec environment

under 'more videos' there is one on restore too.

In BE2010-R3 i can go to the tape in the slot, right-click and start a restore .

Can´t do that in 2012???

Yes. This is correct.  In BE 2012, you cannot restore something straight from the media, i.e. the Storage tab.  You got to restore it from the Backup & Restore tab.

is there a way to view inside a tape???

Not from the Storage tab.  You got to take note of the backup sets on the tape.  Start a restore job and then  expand the backup that you are interested in.
