Need Yoyotta LTFS Tutorial
on Apr 25, 2018 at 4:03:14 pm

Ok, Anybody out there use Yoyotta? I am willing to pay and want about 60-120 minutes of your time to master Yoyotta. I am not interested in the FCP, conform parts. I really need help with understanding the database, LTFS and restore.

They are decent but lack some information. Here is a recent email I got back regarding some questions.

Q: Does YoYotta back up alias’s? (not the linked the file but just the alias. I personally use those as place holders for files that have been completely archived.)
1a) I see the alias listed in the PDF, but not in YoYotta database so I don’t know how these can be restored.

A:) Only media and metadata files are stored in the database. So you would restore either the whole tape or a folder.

Links are backed up. Unless Copy linked files is turned on in Preferences.

Q: I did a restore and it copies one file fast. Is there a way to make sure YoYotta restores sequentially from LTO tape? So that when I restore lets say 5 TBs from tape at once, YoYotta is not FF and REW the tape constantly to do the restore?

A:) When restoring folders are sorted into order, so the restore will be quick. We expect files inside folders to have been written in order.
