Dear experts,

I have read some articles and they all said Windows Backup on 2008 server no longer support backing up to Tape Drives. Is that true?

So, if we insist of using tapes (please don't ask the reason), is our only option to look for a third party backup software such as Symentac? Do you know any Backup Software that are more reasonable in cost? We are only backing up data, no SQL or Exchange database.

Thanks.
