backing up old files to tape.

backing up old files to tape.

i have a Windows 2000 server with a lot of old files on it.
theres about 320 gigs of information that i need to sift through and archive files that havent been accessed in about a year or more.

i then plan to backup these files to tape before removing them off the system, (as they are just taking up space at the moment).

has any one got any ideas on the best way to do this?

is there any commands / programs that will find foldders that has not been accessed in a year, and move them to a new folder for back up?

any help or suggesstions appreaciated.

Do you have a unix or linux server with samba installed?

Look at HP's File System Extender

HP StorageWorks File System Extender (FSE)

The manuals can be found at〈=en&cc=us&docIndexId=179911&taskId=101&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=434256#1

Re: backing up old files to tape.

get the find.exe unix to windows port from the link below

also get the mv.exe from the same site,

use a script to find and move what was found to a prep folder ready for archiving:

find.exe C:\OLD\. -atime +365 -exec mv.exe {} C:\PREP\ ;
