2k3 Tape Backup

By sam19862006 ·
I have setup a daily full tape backup that we rotate between two tapes. I'm using Windows Backup Utility and when it preforms the backup I get the following error: "Cannot locate the specified media or backup device. This backup operation will terminate". If I mark the tape as free then the backup runs. I need the backup to override the information on the tape automatically because I'm not at the office every day and I may not be able to remote in.

Use a different Backup Utility

The Windows Backup isn't designed for Auto Backup's and this is the way that it works.

You should also have more than a 2 Set Backup as there is no possibility to have Off Site Storage with this small a Backup Set so you run the risk of having a total Loss of your Data in the event of a Fire or Flood.
