Hi all, 

Recently one of my users needs to recover an old backup from TAPE.   I installed a brand new Acronis 11.7 then I inventoried and rescan the tapes in order to get their information backed.


The problem is the rescan process not take more than a few seconds and I'm unable to finally get the content from the tape.


I enabled the debug logs and the system only showed the following:


2021-03-19 13:18:02:689 7224 I00000000: Logging has started
2021-03-19 13:18:03:298 668 I0135003A: Command 'Rescanning media' is running.

2021-03-19 13:18:56:780 7224 I00000000: Logging has stopped


Does anyone have an idea about what is happening?


Thanks for your help

Hello Alex,

I'd start troubleshooting with the articles and
If the issue persists and you have some time for investigation, I'd suggest installing a free trial of Acronis Cyber Protect , checking the scenario on a latest product version and contact Acronis support team for investigation, so that our engineers can look into the situation and help.
