Tape backup set prematurely skipping to new member?

Recommended Posts

I'm using 7.6 to transfer snapshots from a large disk backup set (1.5TB) to a new LTO tape library.


On the third tape (3-LTO A), there was a -102 trouble communicating error. Probably a SCSI glitch- the cable is suspect, and I've ordered a replacement.


Anyway, this was less than 5% into the tape, but Retrospect prompted for a new tape - 4-LTO A. I quit the transfer, thinking I would restart it and it would pickup with 3-LTO A.


However, when I try to restart the transfer, Retrospect always prompts me to insert 4-LTO A. 3-LTO A does not appear to be marked as missing- everything appears OK, but Retrospect won't use it.


What's going on? Is there a way to make this tape valid again, short of rewriting the whole backup set?
