Re: Regarding tape drive letter & Backup on tape drive

Tape drives won't have drive letters.

You need to use a backup tool that can work with tape drives.

I can't suggest a tool ,because you did not tell about your OS.

Hope this helps!

Re: Regarding tape drive letter & Backup on tape drive

Hi Mahesh

If you have windows os installed on the server, Then you can follow the following steps to take a backup:
open:Start---Run
and type : ntbackup

ntbackup is the default backup software which comes with the Windows OS (exepct Windows 2008).
