    Quantum LTO 4 Tape Drive

    After a year of waiting I now have a tape drive
    Problem is it only seems to work with Windows Server backup (2008)

    Does anyone know how to do one of the following:-

    1. Get Backup Assist to recognise it as a valid drive

    or

    2. Get it to appear as a drive letter ie drive e: etc

    or

    3. Recommend a suitable backup software in a similar price bracket as backup assist.

    I have been on the phone to Quantum and they said they could help me setup the drive to work with Backuo Exec most helpful ................. not

    So any guidance greatly appreciated

    we use it with DPM, just plugged it in and it worked....

    DPM however, needs a bit of attention and preferably some disks to backup onto first.

    DPM ?
    I can't seem to find that in MS 2008.
    Unless I've missed something
