Hi there,

It's Stuart here from the BackupAssist team, thanks for posting.

When a file is created in such a manner, it means that it's an incomplete zip file and the most likely cause is due to corruption.
Can you confirm that the backup you're attempting to restore from was from a successful backup (based on the backup report)?
If the backup has failed, then it can't be restored from.

Other ways that data can become corrupted on tapes
- is the storage conditions of the tape (environmental based)
- data within the zip file was corrupted on the source

It could also indicate an issue with the actual tape drive that's causing the issue. Have you tried multiple tapes and found the same thing occurs? If so, then I'd try another tape drive to see if this is still the case (it'll help isolate the issue further).
