Read all files from a backup set, ignoring errors?

Recommended Posts

My workplace has projects archived to DDS2 tape, Retrospect 4 and earlier format, for a number of years.  These tapes can mostly be read by Retro 4.3 on OS 9.

My goal is to extract all files from the tapes.  Best close method I found was to search for all files whose name does not contain "qp43p94hnsflkalkjhf;asdfj!q243"- result is to select everything in the backup set.


That's great, up until the point that old tapes are old, and have random read errors.  Upon such an error, the restore job aborts.


Is there any way to get Retrospect to skip errors upon a restore?
