There are few experiences more frustrating than to encounter trouble restoring important backup files. File restoration problems are often the result of drive maintenance and system (or OS) configuration issues. There are a few things you can try that may help ease the trouble. First, clean the read/write heads. Set your computer to a slower speed (i.e., disable the “turbo” mode). Try to restore the files in Safe Mode (if the tape backup drive requires a protected-mode driver, it will not work in Safe Mode). Try to restore the files on a different computer. Finally, verify that there is enough swap file space on your hard drive to restore the files.
