Does anyone use this software for LTO back up and have a good handle on it? I find it really confusing to read their
database and their videos do not help. Would love to find someone who could get me on the straight and narrow.
The YoYotta database stores the drive or tape name plus path for the video files that have been archived in each project. It includes both the source and destination paths along with extra camera metadata for each clip.
After archiving you can search using file name, part of the original path, codec, resolution to locate where the clips came from and where they are now. This allows you to locate the archive drives or tapes ready for a partial restore.
Alternatively you can restore entire tapes.
