Retrieving All Files from a Tape

If you want to retrieve everything on the tape and do not want to list the contents first:

  1. Click SELECT on the Props button to display the Tape Tool Properties window and confirm that you have the correct options set.

    You may want to check the Tape Tool Properties window each time you retrieve files, since the settings are not saved if you quit Tape Tool and start it up again.

  2. Insert the tape in the tape drive.

  3. Choose Read -> Entire Tape.

    The contents of the entire tape are copied onto your system.
