Needs New Media Error

Recommended Posts



I am running retrospect Version 10.5.0 (145) on an mac Xserv running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and I am consistently getting the needs new media error when the tape has plenty of room on it. 


We back up large amounts of video to 2 x LTO3's and it's very frustrating when the A tape completes the task filling up the tape to say 80% but the B tape gets part way through and asks for another tape.


We do not have multiple member tapes but keep each tape separate with 3 to 4 jobs on each.


The last archive that had this problem was an 80gig archive to a tape with 120gig remaining and it asked for a new tape after 60gigs.


Any help would be much appreciated.


We cannot upgrade our xserv to lion as some of the programmes we use will stop working.
