Restore the entire cartridge to disk

Post by lgourdel » Feb 23, 2018 10:30 am


I would like to restore the entire cartridge to disk. I select the folder to restore all the files. But when I run the restore it asks me for several cartridges while all the files are on the same cartridge. How to restore the entire cartridge directly without having any link with the other cartridges.

Hello lgourdel,

Its required when file history was saved across multiple tapes. Let say you took one full backup and then several incremental file to tape job runs. All tapes are required starting from this full backup job run to properly restore the folder history. As a workaround – you can restore only files but not folders.

That said we are working to get this behavior fixed.
