    tabe drives


    by hamatt77 ·

    dear all,

    on my server I have tabe drive with size of 20/40GB but now I am using 12/24GB tabes. If I use 20/40GB tabes, dose it work or not? and is the diffrent between them will be the size only or there is another difreces?

      I will assume you are using a 20/40 gb tape on a DDS-4 Tape drive?

      The 12/24 tapes are DDS-3.

      You will have no issues using DDS-3 tapes on DDS-4 Drives. The drives are backwards compatible.

      You cannot use a DDS-4 tape in a DDS-3 Drive.

      Hopefully this answers you question.
