2TB written to tape and it FAILED! requires cleaning over 15 hours. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This very frustrating and waste time 2TB data written to tapes was failed requires cleaning after over 15 hours of backup.

    The failed job on tape was changed to Expired, but I still believe there are data written on the tapes.

    How do i able to see the content of the tapes if I want to consider it was backup until requires cleaning?

  • click on libraries, then select the tape.

    with the tape selected, click the "view contents" button in the ribbon.

    if you don't have a "view contents" button in the ribbon, click the "identify" button instead and the server will read the contents of the tape.

    after it has inventoried the contents of the tape, the "view contents" button should appear if it has contents that can be used.
