What's the proper way to perform a restore of available data when one of the tapes is missing (damaged)?

PS. Using Bacula


I would think about using the bscan program, which is normally used to recover a damaged database but can also be used to scan the tape for available files.


bextract is probably your best bet. It just dumps whatever files are on a tape into a directory of your choice.
