Hi Tim,

During a backup, Retrospect looks for the correctly named tape. If you put
the correct tape(s) in the loader and your backup is running in unattended
mode (it is by default if you are using scripts to back up), Retrospect will
scan, find the tape and continue with the backup. You needn't rewrite
scripts or take any other additional steps to swap out the drives. Just be
sure that the new drive is supported and shows up in the Configure ->
Devices window properly.
