    Some information about what I’m working with:
    Mac – High Sierra Version 10.13.6
    Bru Pe – 18.1.1

    All the files are inside one standalone tape.

    I can tell everything is connected up fine because when I run a Verify, I can see that the files are on there, and it verifies. It can “Identify Tapes” also.

    The Bru Import tool also also works with “Importing File”, which I can then see on the Restore function of Bru Pe. However there is “No Archive Catalog Found” when I click on the Tapeset. And The ability to Restore button is not clickable.

    not sure how long the import tool takes. first time ran it for 15+ minutes then forced quit cause it was taking too long and then the 2nd time i had it run overnight from 4pm to 10am. and it seemed to still be running and trying to import.

    Are you sure the Bru-PE version is 18.1.1? As far as I remember the last version was 3.x

    In general, Bru-PE could import archives from older versions, but not from newer ones. Maybe the tape is from an Argest setup? Arrest is the successor of Bru-PE.
