Hi - I hope this is the appropriate forum. I am trying to restore a TAR formatted LTO5 tape containing camera master files and created by a third party using Tolis Tape Tools. I am using an HP ULtrium 6250 LTO6 tape drive connected to an iMac with an ATTO ExpressSAS H680 card. The TAR -b value of the tape is 300 and the restore command I am trying is:
taperead -b 153600 | tar -xvb 300 -f-
I have changed the Terminal directory using the cd command to be an external hard drive.
When I run the command the toplevel folder restores but not the contents so Terminal reports:
And then returns to the cursor. In Finder the top level folder is visible but has no contents.
I am sure I am overlooking something obvious and hoping someone can tell me where I am going wrong!
