Bad Tape Media when a tape has bad media it is impossible to read. The reason is that the tape drive's firmware manage bad block on the tape. Usually what happens is that the tape drive will treat a bad block as end-of-tape and in some cases rewind, eject the tape and set the clean-tape flag so a tape cleaner will need to be used. This is done to protect the read/write heads. In some cases our software can help, there are two options. You can select a retension - even if your drive does not support retension we have an emulator that does a retension using a different technique. The second option involves noting down the point where the bad media occurred then setting a start point beyond this.
success is not guaranteed as in either case the tape-drive may still detect the bad blocks, however there are now two more ways of attempting to access the data.
