You are encouraged to read the details at http://www.slac.stanford.edu/comp/vm/backarch-ann.html, but the summary is as follows.  Files archived on ("square") tape cartridges will remain accessible through Unix. To obtain a list of files archived from VM onto tape:

SCS will retrieve critical files from archive tapes for a $50 charge per tape processed to partially recover costs of retrieving the tapes and maintaining the drives. Due to the condition of the tape media and drives, there is no guarantee of successful recovery of the data, even with the best efforts of the staff.  If you wish SCS to perform the file recovery, fill out the Archive Request form.
