Re: what is "error saving selected files" error in backup failure

Shalom,

Usually this error means there was a problem writing the files to tape. The backup should be re-run, probably with new media.

1) Usually tape write error.
2) Bad tape, tape not in the tape drive.
3) Yes probably, could also be a lack of space in /var to write the file list.
4) You already have by posting. There is a log file visible with smh/sam
5) Can't control bad tape media or your operations people not putting the tape in the drive can you?

Hmm, this reply seems to have been orphaned from its topic?
