need help reading data files from DDS-4 SCSI tape
I need to recover files from tape cartridges that were written with a Windows system. The drive is a SCSI tape drive (Branded DELL but made by ARCHIVE) . I am able to use 'mt' to rewind the tape an can get status information from the drive. I also was able to use some tape recovery software on a windows partition to read the files on the tape, but could not save them without buying the software and I don't have the $$. - the point is that the drive is functional and the tapes are readable and the OS recognizes the tape drive.
I am looking for a method to read and save the files from the tape save using Linux (I use UBUNTU 8.04 )
any help would be appreciated.
