Re: DL380 Tape Drive

Hi, that model corresponds to a HP SureStore DAT 72i. You don't say what backup software you are going to use.
You don't really need a driver, most backup programs access the tape drive directly, and Ntbackup just needs a .inf file so the device appears identified as a tape drive.
You can find the needed files here:

This utility will automatically install the SCSI and USB drivers for HP StorageWorks DAT tape drives and DAT autoloaders for systems running Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows XP. These drivers are provided for the Microsoft Windows Native Backup Utility and other Backup Software that requires tape drivers to be loaded.
