What is a good cheap backup program to use instead of Microsoft Backup included with Win2K? I am using a tape drive but it will not restore the data to the server. Any suggestions

Thanks

If you are unable to restore properly from your tape drive, you need to dig deeper into what is causing the problem. Chances are the problem is either equipment-related (need updated driver - however if Backup recognizes the tape drive properly andconducts a backup session without errors, this is probably not the case), or media-related (how old are the tapes you are using, or how often have they been used? Where were they stored?). What error messages are you seeing?

Chances are if Windows 2K Backup isn't working properly, any other backup program will have the same problems.

I have a question to ask you then I will attempt to answer your question.
Have you ever restored data using the tape drive in question? The reason I ask this is I had a situation a while back. I could not do a restore. It turned out to be a bad firmware installed. Once the manufacturer replaced the firmware everthing worked fine.
I am using Veritas Backup MYPC it is cheap about $80.00(US) and easy to use.
