Hey Philipo,,,

You said:

"If Windows can support SCSI hard drives, it can support a VXA-2 tape drive because the drivers are the same."

Since Windows can indeed support SCSI drives that sounds like a contradiction or misunderstanding. I think it's the driver and related utility that helps make the tape drive volumes look the same as a hard drive."


Well utility yes, RMS intergration for Tape-Drives, not in Win-7&Server 2008 OS. any longer, not supported by Win-7/Server 2008 OS Backup:

"Windows 7 have removed Removable Storage Manager (RSM) service from Windows 7.

Microsoft say "You can use RSM to manage online libraries (such as changers and jukeboxes) and track removable tapes and disks."
This means Windows NT Backup for Windows 7 and Server 2008 OS no longer included intergrated support for Tape Drives.


So, now you need to use Third-Party/Tape-Backup Software that uses its own/built-in RSM/service.

From my prior post:

(Snip)

Windows 7 have removed Removable Storage Manager (RSM) service from Windows 7.

Microsoft say "You can use RSM to manage online libraries (such as changers and jukeboxes) and track removable tapes and disks."
This means Windows NT Backup for Windows 7 and Server 2008 OS no longer included intergrated support for Tape Drives.

The way around this for Server 2008 is to install Nortons Backup Exec
For Windows 7 , It seems the only tool I found that support this is Uranium Backup: software backup Tape, SQL Server, NAS, DVD, Zip, FTP and >> BackupAssist Backup Software - backup software for Windows servers, tape backup software, exchange server backup, sql server backup, internet Rsync backup, image backup but so far no free softeware
