Hi,

Ok... I'm going nuts... Everyone says this software is the Best! Well Its the most complicated bloated junk I've ever used.

I got this installed and Can't delete any Media nor any logs or any locations. Nothing!!! And on top of it I can't backup anything because everytime I stick a tape in the drive it spits it right back out and tells me it not the right tape!!!! What right tape??? the tapes are new I unwrap them before I stick them into the server.

All I want is to delete this mess which it will not let me.

All I need to do is backup F drive, Exchange, SQL and web sites. I don't need some software that takes a college degree to run. Just something Simple!

Help!

Thanks,
Rick

haha the best my ass! I have 9.1 and whilst it does the job its not exactly amazing.....and now that symantec have taken over........ill leave the gaps to be filled....

restart your veritas services, what account are you logging on with to use veritas?

check NTBackup and see if it picks up the tapes, you may also want to whack a cleaning tape through the drive
