restore from tape that used BE 11d with BE 2010

Created: 05 Feb 2013 | 2 comments

I have to restore a file that was backed up using BE 11d. I have just upgraded to BE 2010 on a Win 2003 R2. I tried to upgrade to 2012 but that failed misserably. So I had to completely un-install and clean up things and then down graded and went to 2010 instead. Now I have the old 11d tapes but they are not in the inventory. How do I get them into inventory so I can restore a file.

Run an inventory and then catalog the tapes. Hope this helps

...and adding to the above, if you don't see the tape after running the inventory/catalog, check the date range. BE has some stupid quirk in it where it selects a random date from the past, and not necessarily the date the tape was created.

I've seen this plenty of times on the sites I looked after, put in an Idea to get it fixed, seen it on the forums, and heard nothing about the Idea...
