What is the best strategy and storage media for long-term backups, say to 10 or 20 years (if any)? I ask because I do have an old DLT tape drive and some tapes, unusable, because its SCSI controller is no longer among us. It is not 10 years old and is already a problem. -- Marcio

You may want to upgrade bacula to 5.0.1. One change I've noticed is that prior versions didn't purge/recycle tapes not found in the autochanger, which as a consequence didn't add them back into the Scratch pool. Hi, Yes, that's exactly the feature i need. I'll put it in as a feature
