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.
