Well, I can't tell for sure (actually I am not sure what you are asking, but I assume you mean the DLT tape), but a VSTORE of the DLT tape goes only so far and then it asks for the second media to be mounted, which there ain't none.

By the way, I removed the "FCOPY" from the XOVER command line and here is what happened:

:RUN XOVER.XOVER.ALLEGRO;INFO="FROMDISK=!FNAME.BACKUP.SYS; SECONDS=300;SHOW=OFFLINE;TIMES" < T8.MPESG.SYS

Apparently it didn't understand that the "next reel" would be in file FB080411.2 of group BACKUP.SYS....
