I have a DELL box running Windows XP, using Backup Assist (www.backupassist.com
) application, which uses Windows XP Backup (adds a friendlier user interface and some more features). The Tape drive being used is a Quantum Travan 20/40GB Tape Backup (Quantum Manufacturer Part# : STT220000A). We are using 40GB tapes (the total of backup files is about 5GB right now so no compression is being used. Everything is working fine, except our Wednesday Tape.
Every Thursday morning we get this message:
BackupAssist Backup Summary
Date performed: Wednesday, July 12, 2006 10:00:10 PM
Job name: Accounting Backup
Backup Method: Full
Backup Mode: Overwrite
Destination: Tape - Seagate STT3401A
The backup operation was not attempted because the wrong tape was placed in the tape drive.
Tape in the drive: Monday (5/1/2006 22:00 Seq30)
Not sure why this happens as I prepared all the tapes together, consecutively. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday work just fine. Does anyone know how I can re-write the label for this Wednesday tape so the Backup Software/Tape Drive will see it as such and continue with the backups.
I already checked for a re-format option, but it is greyed out, even when checking it direct from XP Backup and the tape is not locked.
