make sure your date range in the restore job is far enough back to include the backups you want to restore.

try running a duplicate job to disk and then restore from that.

What is the OS of the server that is backed up onto this tape? Previously, some users reported cases of Linux backups which showed something like your screenshot and it is usually due to unsupported Linux variants.

my work environment it's full Win OS,  therefore rule out incompativility.

Anyway I tried the option to restore the entire disk to another drive and restoration has worked.

Thank you very much!
