Tape to Hard Drive without Restore Catalog ??

Tape to Hard Drive without Restore Catalog ??

Tape to Hard Drive without Restore Catalog ??

When I purchased the drive SC50 initially I just initialised the tapes and used MS Explorer to drag and drop files onto the appropriate Tape drive letter for backup. This works fine for backup but because there is no Backup catalog created, the Restore function in the Echo software displays no information about the tape that is mounted to restore files from.
I can use the MS Explorer to do this but it takes forever to restore a full 50Gig tape, because it keeps spooling back and forward to the beginning and end of each file that it restores.
Is there any workaround to populate the Restore window of the software with the contents of the tape so the restore function can be used??
If not, is there any freely available third party software to do this (that works!!) ?

Best Regards
