Hello Ross,

 

Try stopping backup services and run the executable as administrator.

Which LTFS software and version are you using? StoreOpen?

Is this standalone tape drive or library tape drive?

Please share hardware and software configuration details.

I'd like to know what is the need for purposing the same tape drive that is already configured with backup exec?

Re: Error facing Installing HPE LTFS Configuration

Glad to know.

 

Every software has its way of recording data on tape, and we were talking about two different tape formats. Tapes formatted by Backup Exec and tapes formatted by LTFS software is different.

 

The software had to load the entire contents from the tape to show you the files that it contained.  The process for saving files would also have to be handled through the proprietary software.

 

In LTFS, A file system defines a format for how content should be written to disk. A file system also provides file system driver software that  “mounts” the file system on the tape, and makes it available for applications to read and write files.
