  1. I have an HP DAT-72 tape drive (HP-Storageworks - USB) and it has an annoying bug. When I am doing an operation, and I put in a cleaning tape, the script "hangs" for several minutes. In "Storage Devices", the drive shows up "Empty", and the script is "waiting for media". It seems nothing I do will free it, except to wait about 2-3 minutes. It then resumes operation. Annoying.
  2. I recently enabled the tape cleaning interval after reading on HP's website that 24 hours of "pulling tape" is the recommended interval between cleaning for my drive (HP storage works DAT72 drive). I find that with this set to non-zero, Retro 9.0.2 will send me email when the tape needs to be cleaned. Cool. Question: Aside from the email, I see no indication that I need to clean the tape drive. If I'm not set up to send email from the engine, how does Retro tell me to clean the drive? Am I missing something on the console? Is there a counter somewhere that tells me how many hours have been racked up?
