When using the 'mt' command:
I am using a linux system with a HP_Ultrium_960 (800GB) tape drive. I inadvertantly used the 'weof' command when testing and wrote an 'eof' marker at the beginning of the tape. I have used the command 'gtar -ztvf /dev/rmt/2' and get an 'unexpected end of file' prompt.
Can I reverse this 'eof' placement somehow? Also can I use commands such as the 'fsf' to read after the 'eof' marker. I need to retrieve the data.
Appreciate if someone could...
