NAME

        bscan - Bareos's 'Scan tape'

SYNOPSIS

       bscan [options] bareos-archive

DESCRIPTION

       The  purpose of bscan is to read (scan) a Bareos 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.   Logical  inconsistencies  in  the
       Bareos  database  can  be found by bareos-dbcheck.  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.
