Hoping for help and/or magic:
I have a backup tape that Arkeia (v. 5.3.12, running on CentOS 4.3) has marked as "Recycled". I'm pretty certain that the tape has NOT been overwritten, and so the data should still be on the tape. I understand that re-indexing the tape would probably allow me to retrieve the file, but re-indexing will take a long time and I'm not sure which of my dozen tapes contains the file.
Is there a way to mark a tape as not-recycled, thus making its contents available for restore?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
