Transfering Backup Set it is asking for destination tape this is already loaded

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to perform a transfer of an old backup set to new media so I can decommission my old tape drives. I have already transfered about 6 sets to my new set. My destination tape set has just one member, and it is in the drive and succeeds when I perform a Media Verification on it. However, when I attempt a transfer to it again, Retrospect asks for #1 of my destination set, even though it is in the drive. It does not want to proceed with transfer. Any ideas?

I was able to resolve the issue by re-cataloging the destination tape set. After that it let me add more data to it again.

You should have been given an error in the log when the media set was corrupted. Or did you have a power outage and no UPS? Or did the server crash?


Anyway, I'm glad you solved your problem. :)
