Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask this or its a daft question but I'm a newbie in terms of Linux.
I am trying to retrieve some MOV files off an LTO4 tape written by a XENDATA Archive System.
I have followed the instructions on the Xendata White Paper at http://www.xendata.com/Assets_White_...r%20format.pdf
and can get the files off the tape.
But as Xendata use a modified version of POSIX tar the files are coming off the tape in there fragmented state.
Can anyone suggest how I can retrieve the "complete" MOV file by perhaps modifying the command line I'm using at present which is
tar óblocking-factor=128 -xf /dev/tape/by-path/pci??????
