Restore single file failed

Restore single file failed

Restore single file failed

I have a W2K server, running Arcserve 2000 attached to a tape drive. It backups my work files (*.doc, *.dgw, ...).
Here's the deal. I do a backup. All seems well.
Now I need to restore one single file from that tape.

By using the restore manager I locate the requested file, I select the directory and let it run now.

When I view the job log, I can see that it is locating the file. After +-10 min it says skipping and after +- 5 hours I get an failure.
The same happens when I use another tape (I backup every day - each time with an other tape)

How can I restore that one file that I desperate need?

With kind regards

RE: Restore single file failed

have you tried restoring another file. If successfully, then it looks like you have been backing up a corrupt file. Do you have any anti virus running on the backup server that might be affecting the file....
