Any reason why restoring from LTO (BRU PE, specifically) can't be easier?
by Terence Patrick 1 year ago
tl;dr version: Why can't restoring from a tape made in any copy of BRU PE (from any user's computer) be a simple as it is to do the Quick Archive - insert tape, select files, press Restore, and done L
