Tape Drive Question

Hi. We have a Windows Server 2008R2 and a NAS unit with a tape backup an HP AQ281A LTO-5 tape drive using an Adaptec 1045 adapter and Novastor software. The tape backup stopped appearing in the devices and the Novastor backup continually fails. I did a HP Diagnostic and it says the tape unit is working but it does not appear as a device when I go to "Computer". Sorry I am not too technical. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello ,

Pease refer to the below URL for StoreEver BURA Compatibiltity Matrix,  page number 22 and 23  for the available Software partners which are supported with the LTO-5 Extranl HH Tape drive . Unfortunately we dont see "Novastor backup " listed under the supported software for the LTO- 5 HH External Tape Drive.

Please make sure you have the device driver loaded for the tape drive. They can be found at the following link.
