Server stolen - Restore from backup tapes fails with error -24201

Recommended Posts



A customer of mine just got his server stolen (machine running OSX 10.4.6 Server) and i'm currently attempting to recover their data from a backup.


Since their tapedrive is SCSI based i'm using a G3 running OSX 10.2.8, and an adaptec scsi card (29160).

Rebuilding the catalog from the tapes seems to work, however, when attempting to actually restore anything, i get the -24201 error (chunk checksum didn't match), i get this error immediatly, even before any tape access occurs, wich means i can not recover any data.


Does anyone know a workarround to this rather frustrating issue?


The retrospect version is 6.1.126, the tapedrive is a Lacie D2 DDS4 drive (Sony mechanism inside)
