If you get NeoFinder you can import Bru PE catalogs one by one. These are in the files with a '.gz' extension in the folder /Library/Application Support/BRU PE/Catalogs/xxxxxxxxxx folder.

NeoFinder lets you browse and search the LTO contents like they were a local hard disk. What's missing is the tape name in case you've set a tape name when making an archive.

You can then export this as a csv file and import that into a spreadsheet. If you need to total file sizes, you'll need to add a formula to extract that. File sizes come out in a separate column as
10.5 MB (1,05,33,775 Bytes)
29.4 MB (2,93,50,736 Bytes)
and so on.

Also, in the trial I did with NeoFinder 6.9.8, there was no file creation date, or file modified date for any file.
So I'm not sure if its missing in the Bru archive (unlikely) or in the translation from Bru archive to NeoFinder.
