My windows sever 2003 (R2) has backup exec ver 10 running. I have continually had issues where it was not compressing files and would often have to change tapes mid-backup (the server has a single tape internal drive). But, that's not the issue; I need help in determining how to locate the correct backup tape when doing a restore.
Attempting to restore one particular image file, I started the operation, selected the file, selected where to restore to and clicked "run now"; easy, huh? Not!
Once the restore started, it ejected the tape in the drive and, in the "alerts" section, requested tape with the label of "DLT00003"; okay, so now I start inserting each of the backup tapes I use (a total of six; I have no clue which is "DLT00003") and how much you wanna guess none of those tapes had the file? Nope. Not a single of my tapes seemed to be the right one; and this is a recent backup!!
So, how do I determine which tape to insert to retrieve/restore the correct file? Any help is greatly appreciated. Many thanks, in advance.
Software/Hardware used: Dell Power Edge 800 server, W2K3, Backup Exec ver 10, 4 internal ESIA 87GB drives in RAID 5 config
