Backup Exec 10.1
Posted on 2006-11-27
I have just upgraded by Backup Exec server to version 10.1(d).
Recently I have been noticing some fails due to bad media and so wanted to try wiping a tape before the next backup. How do I do this. I have put a tape in but it doesn't appear in the loaded media part. Only once the backup begins does it appear. How do I blank a LTO tape in Backup Exec?
What kinda life should I expect from an LTO? some of the tapes seem ok, some are giving the bad read errors and failing.
They are all about a year and a half old.
