Hi,

It's going to ask you for another tape if the backup job spanned 2 tapes. In which case to restore everything, insert tape #2.

Thanks!

Yes. You can. Click on the BE button ---> Configuration and Settings ---> Backup Exec Settings ---> Catalogs and uncheck the "Use storage-based catalogs" option.
