File recovery from a backup tape
Hello there, this is an area that I have so far not had to deal with so basically have no clue.
A pupils work has been deleted, checked the trash can and no joy.
The pupils work was deleted on Friday, I do have the backup tape from Thursday.
So basically can I search the backup tapes for his work/Home Folder?
If so, how would I do this.
Something else to add its RM servers running RM Backup.
Cheers in advance for any help.

Pop the tape in.
Click start, run, type ntbackup and press enter.
It should offer you a wizard to use for a restore and list an 8mm AIT (typical RM Tape Drive) in which you should be able to find the tape label and navigate to find the students work.
Be patient though, tape access is slow because it's sequential start to finish.
Also, it might be advisable to restore to a temporary location to verify it's the correct stuff rather than blindly overwriting.
Good luck, of if you hit any oddities, fire me a PM tomorrow and I'll work through one with you on one of our RM Servers. (We don't use ntbackup anymore though).
Hope this helps.

Coffee is a must
Good luck, but I'm sure you'll be fine.

Hmm... Been so long since I used ntbackup, I'm in the office on Friday if you want to talk through it on the phone or w/n.
