I have a problem with NTBackup in Windows NT 4.0. I often need more than one tape to accomplish a backup, but if I lose one tape from a backup set I can't restore files from the remaining tapes. Is there any way around this restriction?
Your problem is easy to rectify. Open the Run dialog box and enter the command
You then can restore a file from any of your orphaned tapes. Be aware, however, that this fix won't work in Windows 2000, which uses removable- storage–media commands that are far more complex than NT 4.0's commands.
