Re: BACKUPS: error - fbackup(3205) unable to read volume header (2K)

The error message simply means that fbackup looked on the tape and found no volume header. This situation is normal for a tape which is being used for the first time by fbackup.

If you use this tape again, then you won't see this message but it will flash a message instead showing number of times the volume is used.
