Has backup grabbed my optical drive?

Recommended Posts

My beginning-of-the-month full backup to DAT DDS-3, which started about midnight, is still underway and should complete late this afternoon.


I was disappointed to discover that I can't open the empty optical drive on my G4/867. When I push the open button on my keyboard, the momentary big graphic button appears on my main monitor, but the optical tray does not open. mad.gif


Having previous problems with an audio CD blocking my overnight backup (see "Complaint - overzealous warning messages"), I suspect that Retrospect has grabbed my optical drive just in case it's needed (although my Backup Set is a sequence of DAT tapes).
