Re: tapecopy of auto-loader

Hi there.
Which OS do you use ?
For the easy way you need at least two tape drives ( not mentioned by the type of auto-loader ). If possible, send some more detailed info ( type of autoloader, OS etc ).

Thanks for reply.
OS:W2K
auto loader type: 1/9 series
Actually we want to make copies within the tape loader, i.e. sequence1 to sequence2. How? Please advise.

Re: tapecopy of auto-loader

This is a function not supported by the library / loader hardware.

You can either make copies from within your backup software. Or there are a few add-on copy utilities. But typically copy operations have to be performed inside the application in order for them to be recognized by the software later-on.
