HP Storageworks Ultrium 448, need help reading data

Hi!

 

We have a tape backup which wasn't used for a long time. I have no idea how to get the data on one of the tape, bu I need to look on them as we are looking for an old backup (our new backup are externally since 1 year)

 

Is there any software that needs to be installed?

 

Any help would be nice!

 

Thanks

You probably need the same tool that wrote to the tape.

Hope this helps!

Many backup tools use their own format to write to files, so you need the same tool to read the data.

Hope this helps!
