Rewinding a tape

If you use a no-rewind tape device to back up the data, the tape device does not automatically rewind the tape after the backup. To restore data backed up using such a tape device, you should rewind the tape when you load the tape drive.

Step

  1. To rewind a tape, enter the following command:
    mt -f device rewind

    device is the name of a tape device used on the tape.

Example

mt -f nrst0a rewind
