unable to read tape, how can I tell what's on it?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have a tape that's ruined (dropped on the floor, case cracked open, the person that dropped it was also carrying a cup of coffee... use your imagination).


How can I tell what was on that tape? It's tape 13 of a set of 17.


Thanks for the help.

This isnt exactly pretty but it will give you some idea of what was there:


Configure the backup set and set the tape missing on the members tab.

Then start a restore using the search for files option.

Leave the search criterial blank.

Anything with an asterisk next to the name was on that tape.
