bscan - Bacula’s ’Scan tape’
bscan [options] bacula-archive
The purpose of bscan is to read (scan) a Bacula Volume and to recreate
or update the database contents with the information found on the
Volume. This is done in a non-destructive way. This permits restoring
database entries that have been lost by pruning, purging, deleting, or
a database corruption problem.
Normally, it should not be necessary to run the bscan command because
the database is self maintaining, and most corrupted databases can be
repaired by the tools provided by the database vendors. In addition,
if you have maintained bootstrap files during backups, you should be
able to recover all your data from the bootstrap file without needed an
up to date catalog.
