  • I have a LTO 3 tape drive that does not read my LTO2 tapes is this normal?

    I have a LTO 3 tape drive that does not read my LTO2 tapes is this normal? I thought they were backwards compatible. I can read the LTO2 tapes in the LTO2 drive but not vice versa. It seems to be letting me write to them but not read them.

  • Copying LTO 3 Drive to tape

    We back up everynight to a LTO3 drive. Can we copy the tape to send it to multiple locations and not just store it in our datacenter? We use brightstore.

  • Can we simulate a library with multiple tape drives?

    We have several LTO3 tape drives instead of purchasing a library can we make use of the 4 drives like a library to span tapes without having to load new ones? Using Backup Exec 12 on Win 2008 R2.

  • LTO 2 tape backup for Windows server 2003

    Using tapes (LTO2) from a Windows server 2003 and NTBackup. Is this possible? Can I backup to the tape and selectively restore? Or will I need more robust software?

  • Can I speed up my LTO 4 daily tape backup?

    Backing up servers over a 100mbps node is very very slow. Is there anything that can be done to speed this up over the existing 100mbps line? The transfers seem to be going at around 7-12mbps. The server is a Windows 2000 Advanced server and the client machines are Windows 2003 R2 servers.
