WE have brought a HP C7438A ( USB DAT72 GB external tape drive )
But we are having no end of trouble with the free software that comes with it ( data protector express )
It keeps refusing media, even though we tell it to "Format any first"
Issue is this is a very small workgroup server and we need a SIMPLE backup program to run over night.
We don't care which tape the operator puts in the drive!
Would rather have a backup on the wrong tape rather than no backup at all.
So we need advice on a backup program that is simple and easy to use.
We don't need hundreds of options / bells / whistels
