Tape cleaning

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been covered before.


I'm using Retrospect 6.5 with a Travan40 tape drive. I have told Retrospect that the cleaning interval is evey 8 hours; but I can't figure out how to have Retrospect tell me that it time to clean the drive. Is this possible?


I can't tell it to clean the drive unless a cleaning tape is in there (I assume). But the drive will initiate cleaning as soon as the cleaning tape is inserted; so I can't clean through Retrospect.


Would be nice to tell Retrospect that I've just cleaned the drive, then start keeping tack of usage to notify that cleaning ware required the next time around.


TIA, Again sorry if this is old and covered topic.
