Backup media

By edmond_sng ·
Hi,

How do I allocate a free media to Windows 2000 backup so that the media is available in Backup media or filename drop down box ?

I would really appreciate your help

You can go in the Removable Storage Manager zone in the "Manage" console of your W2K. There, you find your tape in the "Unrecognize" pool. Right-click on your tape and select "Prepare"...

Tips: open "Ntbackup", go in the "Backup" tab, insert yourtape, wait a few seconds. You then receive a po-up saying the media is not prepared --> 'Do you want to prepare it ?' --> just answer Yes. Now make a small backup (1 file is enough). In such a way, your media will be put in the backup pool.
