Bad To Leave Lto Tape In Drive All The Time?


Recommended Posts

AFAIK you can just leave the tapes in the drive. We have a loader that we load with tapes every Friday. It runs the entire weekend, using 6 tapes. Then we do normal (incremental) backups. That isn't much data, so tape 6 is in the drive from Sunday night until Friday morning with no ill effects at all. It's used a few hours every night, idle for about 19 hours a day, for four days
