    Re: Restored backup from tape but cannot restore files (veritas)

    Right finally got this working

    Had to set up BackupExec on another server in the end as it seemed to be getting confused while cataloging it

    Even on the new server ther catalog operation failed but it did enough for me to be able to get the work back

    BUT later on today, I looked at the recycle bin on our staff server and low and behold, the exact documents I was trying to restore (half the ICT teachers documents which dissaperared in the server move) were all there!
    So Ive wasted almost a week on this when I didnt even need to!

    Add to this the fact that while my backup to tape went well on Friday, I forgot to eject it this morning, so it started copying a 2 week old backup onto it from the old job, overwriting the new backup...ahhhh

    Glad you got it sorted, and we've all done that overwriting thing, i've done it before on ones without Veritas
