System Center Data Protection Manager 2007: Recatalog an expired tape

Hey All,

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
