Hi Can anyone help,
Backup problems with an Sbs2003 server using its native backup,
Error as below

Backup started on 15/08/2007 at 23:05.
The requested media failed to mount. The operation was aborted.
The operation was ended.
Backup completed on 16/08/2007 at 04:09.
Directories: 6289
Files: 54478
Bytes: 26,834,055,120
Time:  5 hours,  4 minutes, and  19 seconds

In the hardware list its lists the tape drive as a Benchmark Dlt1 vs80
The tapes we use are Maxwell dlt iv 40/80

Drive c: has used 32,5 Gb and the mailboxes are only using 2 Gb
Backup works fine if i run ntbackup and just back our 4 Gb data folder,

So it appears to be a tape space problem!
Any advice is appreciated
