Ever needed to get data from a tape that is already expired? In DPM, you won’t have the option anymore to recatalog the tape when it is expired.
Santhosh Sivarajan from Houston has found a simple workaround:
* Select the tape and mark the tape as free
* Select the tape again and unmark the tape as free
* Now you can choose Recatalog imported tape
