I need to make exact copies of some LTO 4 tapes, but I'm not sure how to do this.
Here is some info regarding my system:
OS = RHEL 6.2
3GHz Quad Core Processor
One External SAS LTO 5 tape drive
Should I backup from the source tape to a tar file on the hard drive, install blank tape and then extract the tar file to the blank tape? What is the best method?
