I have an external DLT Ultrium tape solution. The external tape chassis's fans are very loud when running to the point of annoying. Is that normal for one? And can I shut off the tape drive during business hours and turn it back on and still have the backup job complete successfully? It is attached to a Win 2003 Std. server. It appears that the OS will recognize it when I power it on but not MS Backup will not. I was going to look at BackupExec for a better application but if it will not see the tape drive after a power cycle of just the tape drive, then I need to look at something else. Any suggestions?
