Dell power vault 124T Cleaning


I am currently putting in the cleaning cartridge once a month. The tape drive is used on an everyday basis. Should I be running the cleaning cartridge more often? Thanks!

Once a month is generally good unless your backing up crazy amounts of data. Once every week or two would not be overkill either. Make sure you don't use the same claening tape more than 50 times though. Keep track of how many time you use it.
