Disk To Tape

Recommended Posts

I current have a disk backup that runs everyday, once a day. On top of this backup i would like to copy that information onto a tape media set.


So, i set up my VXA tape drive and inserted a tape. Retrospect sees it as a tape drive, and i make a Media set including the tape as its member. I then run the script i have to copy the information from my disk to my tape and it all runs fine.


However, when the tape runs out, 28 GB's later nothing lets me know what it is in fact, full. According to the script it is still running and writing. But under media sets it says Used 28.4, Free, 1.0KB.


How can i set retrospect to pause the media set copy and send me some sort of notification when the tape is full and needs another, blank tape?
