Sbackup and Multiple Tape drives

We have a server running NW4.1 and we're using Sbackup 4.14
for backing up to a 4mm Dat Drive. We have an extra tape drive. Is it possible to hook up both tape drives and run two copies of sbackup at once so we could backup our whole
server in a shorter amount of time? Have you done this?

Yes you can hookup both tape drives but you can't run two copies of sbackup. Sbackup is bare bones when it comes to backup software. It will let you perform a backup to each tape drive but will proccess only one at a time. I would suggest getting a package like Backup Exec,Palindrone or Arcserve. All of these will write to concurent tape drives to save time.
