We needed to restore a folder to our Windows 2008 server, and discovered that we cannot restore any files more than a week old. The job status shows that these backups completed fine, but even though we can see them, the files cannot be accessed.
From the snapshot, all files dated in the backups 12/6/2014 to 12/12/2014 can be restored. However the ones below that cannot be. Clicking on one of those does not even display a directory tree as seen to the right.
I'd like to get something off the year end backup (not this tape) if possible, but it only shows backups with the yellow symbol in the lower left of the icon, like the ones I cannot access above.
More important, how do I fix whatever is wrong so I can get files off of old backups?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Overwrite is set to infinite. No, I have not tried cataloging. Not that I have I noticed all the tape names and parameters apply to our old 700GB tapes that we stopped using years ago. The data is backing up on 1.6TB tapes, but the program still shows they are 700GB. Could that be the problem? And how do I fix that?
