paulvb Posted January 27, 2003 Report Share Posted January 27, 2003 Is it possible to put names (labels) on tapes that Retrospect will continue to use without changing them? It appears that Retrospect always makes up new tape label names based on the backup set name. This means that every time I do I backup, I may need to change a label - requiring me to scribble out the one I wrote on the sticker on the tape and try to squeeze in the new label. In a couple months with Retrospect I've changed strategies a couple times with backing up my home network. I've used up the 2 little lables that came my DDS tapes; I now need to start some artistic work cutting out replacements from floppy labels that will fit over the existing stickers and not cause problems with the drive door. There has to be an easier solution. I've used backup programs in the past where I would run a label program and put on an electronic label that would not change during backups. I'd like to be able to take 10 tapes, label then "001" to "010" and have retospect just use these labels forever. Any options in Retrospect to do that? How do other folks deal with this? thanks, Paul Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
