When I backup to disk and then try to pull it to tape the job fails. Sorry I don't have a ton of details because my BU server crashed and I just got it back online. Howerver, I am looking for input as to why the back to tape from disk always failed.

I just checked and it always tells me the file is corrupt.

These are *.bkf that veritas has created when backing up to disk that I want to spin to tape for off-site storage.

You will have to provide some more information so we can better help you. Post some exact error messages and / or log files.
Did your create a 'duplicate' job to copy the "BKF" files to tape, or just another job that creates a backup of your B2D folder ?

Did you check your hardware?
Are there any messages in the eventlog that may indicated faulty disks?
Start with running chkdsk on your backup2disk folders.

Are you running a verify after the job completes at all? Does the B2D job complete successfully, and then fail on the duplicate to tape?

Are you doing a standard backup of the BKF files, or are you Duplicating them to tape
(The latter is the preferred way)
