LOG: Backup set format inconsistency (7 at 0)

Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

it started showing up when i created a new backup set with brand new tapes.

first, i got this error:


Trouble writing: “1-G5 Backup C” (847249408), error 206 (drive reported a failure: dirty heads, bad media, etc.). Additional error information for device "Ecrix VXA DC" [0:1],

Sense > f0 00 03 00 00 00 06 0a 00 00 00 00 0c 00 00 00 00 00

(ECRIX |VXA-1 |1101)


so, i cleaned the heads and attempted another backup to the new set.

that is when i received the "Backup set format inconsistency (7 at 0)" error.


so, you think its a bad tape, eh?

i'll just trash it and start anew.

100~ and 200~ errors are reported by the device to Retrospect. Retrospect then passes the information on to you. That means the hardware is detecting a problem. The first place to start is new tapes. Make sure your tape drive firmware is up to date too.
