I have a 8mm tape backup setup. The problem is, the tape backup software called tapeware needs to load a Database of all the backups under certain users in order to restore. Well, that database was lost with the system that crashed and it is not on any of the tapes.

My question is, is there a 'universal' tape drive reading piece of software that would allow me to restore that data off of my last tape backup?

Tapeware was discontinued at the end of 2006 and was replaced by Yosemite's new Product: Yosemite Backup.

They have pulled their Tapeware free trial from cnet but tucows still has it
