DP Express 3.1-sp3 Restore issue


We are trying to test our backups using Data Protector Express 3.10-sp3 by restoring the complete tape to a sub-directory. We go through the process of selecting the data we want and "moving" it to the target destination. When we run the job it starts off normally and begins restoring correctly. The process then stops and is prompting for different media.

The documentation seems to indicate that it will use the latest version by default which would be the tape in the drive that we are restoring from.

Are we doing something wrong in building the restore job that would make it request old media? What is the correct process to restore all files from a tape to a temporary directory to test the backup?
