Request for new media

Recommended Posts

Hi. During a nightly backup, Retrospect 7.5 lost connection with the tape drive. The fault on the drive was easily fixed and the tape is OK, but Retrospect is now asking for a new tape, even though the existing tape is only 25% full. Is there any way of resetting the request for new media in this scenario?

You can check the backup set properties to see if this tape is marked as missing in the members tab. You can easily click "found".


If the tape is already found, then you may have experienced a media failure while writing to the tape. This results in an end of data marker on the tape, and you can not add any data without erasing the tape first.
