LTO-6 Ultrium problems

Hi everyone,

 

I have the product mentioned above and recently when I try to copy files from the already backed-up materials on the tapes to  a hard drive, the export process doesn't finish and the file is unusable.

I get that message says sindows could not copy the file.

 

Also,

 

Sometimes, from various reasons tapes gets corrupted.

It could be from computer shutdown or other reasons.

 

When I try to open corrupted tapes, the machine keeps making noises, but this could be for hours and nothing happens.

Is there a way to save these tapes for future use?

Thank you all!

To get the data off the tapes?  Or to scratch them?

What software did you use to create the tapes?

Hi,

 

If the tapes were stopped by computer shutdown or any similar reason, I can't scratch the tapes at all.

In the first case- I can scratch the tapes, but can't get the data off the tapes.

 

I am using HP LTFS software.

 

Any ideas?
