tape backup and whs RRS feed

  • Question

  • i just installed whs on my new server. so far it seems like a great product.


    my question is this--if whs is based on win server 2k3 drivers, why wont it support a tape backup?

     i have some finacial info for taxes that i need to keep, so the tax man will not get me.   i need to keep this info for 6+ years. and tapes seem to be the ticket.

    also if you have a data based business and your db is full, and want to back it up to a tape you cant.does anyone have a work around or can someone write an add on that will work?

  • Because the APIs usually used by existing backup software can break Drive Extender. I'm sure that given enough time someone will create a backup solution that will work with Drive Extender.
