Changing Backup device


Recommended Posts

Hi There


We currently have a proactive backup set which has 27 members.


I have now installed an LT05 drive replacing the lt03. How do I continue the sets without starting again


I ran the proactive and it seemed to want to backup the whole lot again so I stopped it before it started.


In options I selected new member then append member was right?

I would STRONGLY recommend you to create a new backup set.


You have 27 members. The probability that one tape in the set develops a fault is 27 times greater than if you have one tape in the set.


So archive the 27 tapes OFF SITE and pray that they ALL work if/when you need them.
