Keep DLT Tape Data

Hi there,

Currently my company using DLT type data cartridge to do the daily, weekly, monthly and yearly backup, due to the Backup Devices that i use are always spoil and send to repair and the increasing of the capacity of the data, i plan to change the backup devices to HP StorageWorks LTO-3 Ultrium 920, so all the tape that i use will become LTO-3 tape, beside that keep my old Tape Drive for read the old data, is it have any other method take i can take?

Thanks and best regard

Re: Keep DLT Tape Data

You might also want to mention what operating systems and backup software you're using...

If I understand you correctly, you're wanting to ensure that you can still get data off the DLT tapes for a period of time ...?

Cheers,

Re: Keep DLT Tape Data

Hi there,

Currently i'm using Tandberg Data DLT VS Autoloader with Veritas Backup Exec version 8.60 Rev.3808 in Window Server 2000 platform. The tape that i use is HP DLT IV data cartridge which is with 80GB capacity.

I have another question wish to ask as well, currently i use 5 tape to do weekly backup and the byte count in my Backup Exec is 235,282,545,999 byte, so is it mean that total size that i backup is 219.123...GB, so the total tape size that i use is 219.123GB, or it have another calculate method? Sorry i'm very new in backup device.

Thanks and best regard
