backup tool in windows xp professional and tapes...
Posted on 2004-08-22
using the backup software that comes w/ windows xp professional and a tape drive.
how exactly do i setup these tapes so they are recognized? some of them have been used before by another computer, and the backup program recognizes them... but how exactly are they used by the backup software?
please explain in detail how to load a tape, set it up for use by the backup software, and configure the software to backup daily on 7 different tapes (one for each week).
another problem i am having, is with some tapes, after inserting the backup software does not recognize/react to them... or it does and gives them some weird name like: 'Media created on 6/11/04....'.
Do not want to use any other software but this one that comes w/ Windows xp professional, so please dont suggest alternative.
Please explain in lay terms... thanks!
