Restore files from old backup

by dhodges335 » Sat Feb 17, 2018 6:27 am

I have to restore some files from over a year ago and when I click on the "All" tab in restores, that list only goes back a few months.
I am backing up to a external tape drive that has not changed for almost 2 years now. LTO-6
