Reply to:   RE: during retrospect rewind the tape...

Retrospect will now always rewind your tape when you quit the application
to (among other reasons) prevent problems writing an end of data marker.
We were finding that with certain tape drives, if you told Retrospect (in
earlier versions you could do this) not to rewind your tape on quit, it
would not properly write an end of data marker, which would make it
impossible to append data to the end of the tape.

The reason it takes so long? My guess is that Retrospect is waiting until
the command that it sent to the tape drive (to erase) has completed
before freeing up the machine for other tasks.
