Thanks for the replies to my earlier posts, folks! The person who ran 
the backups before me told me that she went through a year of backups 
with one set of tapes before she had a problem with the "tape eating 
its tail," so something somewhere along the line (maybe with earlier 
versions of Retrospect?), we either erased the tape and started over, 
or she didn't know what she was talking about.

Now, one more question. I have a feeling I know the answer to this 
already, but...

If we purchase another tape drive, is it possible to tell Retrospect 
to backup a certain selection set to one drive, and another set to a 
different drive? I read in the manual, and here on the list, that you 
can use two drives as a "poor man's autoloader," which I understand 
how it works and it's fine.

However, I'm interested in test driving the new VXA drive, and was 
hoping I could use it to just backup our servers, and not our client 
desktops. I'd like to leave those still backing up to our DDS-3 DAT 

So, am I out of luck?

Thanks in advance, again!
