I have a tape that was backed up long time ago, probably 5-6y, on a Windows Server 2003. Now I have a situation that I want to check up what was backed up on that tape back then. The backup wasn't made by me, nor the server on which was backed up exists. I just installed new Win2k3 just for this assignment.
I don't have much experience with Windows Server 2003 default backup program. From the given options I can see that you have the so called "backup catalog" there, and I guess that you must have the correct tape labeled to insert into the tray to restore files from. Since the tape wasn't made on that server how can i check the tape and perhaps to catalog it? Why I don't see any option like
Scan a tape??
I know that this is funny but I don't have much experience with tapes. My job as sysadmin started right on with Windows Server 2008 :). I guess some of you older admins know a way to do this, or perhaps I am missing some of the options of that old windows backup utility.
