Tape backup compatibility & Windows95
Posted on 1997-03-26
I know it’s supposed to work, but I’m wondering if there are any specific problems that have beeen encountered with HP Colorado internal T3000 tape backup drive compatibility (glitches, Win95 device setup, etc., etc.)with Windows 95?
I’ve got WFW 3.11 and going over to Win95, so am particularly interested if there have been problems using backups made with this drive using Colorado Backup for WIN v2.9 running on WFW 3.11 and subsequently restoring them to disk with Colorado Backup for WIN’95 running (obviously) on WIN’95.
The other componenets (in addition to the drive itself):
Software bundled with the drive is Colorado Backup for DOS, Win3.x, and Win95. The latest versions of the software, I believe, are Colorado Backup for DOS v4.8, for Win v2.9, and Win95 v1.70.
Uses floppy controller (they indicate 1 Mbits/sec) or optional controller card (their FC20 16-bit controller, for 2Mbits/sec).
Reads/writes QIC3020, QIC3020 WIDE, and Travan-3 tapes.
