  • Hi Chandru,

    Go to restore and choose the data source you would like to restore, you will then be able to start a catalouge task from there as long as the tape is not expired.

  • Hi Chandru,

    It's strange that the tape is already marked free, but the unmark tape as free is not a listed option, but if Roberts suggestion does not work, try the below procedure.

    1) Right-click the tape and select "Mark tape as free" - the label will be "Free (contains data)
    2) Right-click the free tape and select "Unmark tape as free" - the label will show as (Imported) <the origninal tape label>.
    3) Right-click the Imported tape and select "Recatalog imported tape" Once cataloged, the tape contents should show up under the recovery tab under the EXTERNAL DPM TAPES, and you should be able to browse the contents and restore from there.

    The restore options available will be limited to restoring to a network share or disk of any server that has an agent installed.  You cannot restore back to original location.
