Hi Brad, No problem (about the thinking out loud), I think this is interesting. I don't know what format you're storing the data on the CD with your virtual tape drive, but if was simply SAVF format in a .zip file, I personally would have no problem using OS400 facilities to unzip the save file and restore from that. However, I can see that it might be a problem for people who simply want to use RSTLIB or RSTOBJ.
