CatDV Re-archive footage with Cache-A
on Mar 30, 2012 at 2:40:06 pm

Mac system, CatDV Client version 9.06.

We're doing some testing with archiving and recalling footage via the Cache-A CatDV plugin. We had an error on our first transfer. We had been told that Cache-A (via the CatDV plug-in) would ask for a new tape when the first one was full. However, in earlier testing someone had deselected "multiple volumes" and we figured that is what caused the problem.

So, we erased the tape and now that we have "multiple volumes" turned on we want to re-run the batch we originally backed up since they did not all get written to the tape. However, CatDV in the "Archive Summary" field shows ALL the files as backed up... (not true) and every time I select all files and go to Tools > Archive Media Files > Archive it comes back in an instant saying "Copied 0 files... 746 file(s) already copied). Blarg.

I can't change the "Archive Summary" field (or any other system generated archive related field) so not sure how to get CatDV / Cache-A to re-archive these files. Any help would be appreciated.
