Restore all files, skip tape errors?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Is there any way to tell Retrospect 4.3 or 5 under OS 9 to not stop on media errors?


I have numerous DDS3 tapes from 2002 and earlier that I would like to retrieve all the content from and move to different media. The restore works fine until I encounter a 206 media error, which halts the retrieval. I can restart the restore with an exception to omit the file it failed on, but with no idea how many 206 errors are hiding in these vintage tapes, I could need to add an unmanageable number of exceptions.
