I normally take a ghost image of my Win2000 Partition for backup purposes, and when i reformat.

I own 3 Seagate Travan TR5 Drives (10/20 GB), Does anyone know an easy way to dump the files onto the Tape, for archiving, without dumping the whole partition.

Must work on 2000 Pro, 2000 Server aswell prefered.

I believe you can use NTBackup thourgh scheduling to backup the files you want.

Start > Programs > Accessories > Backup.

I am not entirely sure it supports backup to your paricular tape drive but you can certainly find out by giving it a try anyway. :>)

I've used Backup Exec both server and workstation.

I wasn't aware at the time that there was a function for dumping files to tape.

Thanks

hmm... I never said i WASN'T using it with tapes.

The main part is that i want to DUMP FILES to tape, not back up partitions.

Backup Exec allows you to back up individual files, folders, or entire disks.
