    Hello all
    Im using NT backup on a win2000 server with dlt drive. I went throught
    the wizard and created a schedule backup job.... the problem is when i
    went back to the reports i get "could not perform backup because no new
    media"


    heres how i set the job up ........
    after selecting the directories
    1. then it ask where to store the bk... i pick dlt for the type and "new
    media" for the media or file name.
    2. normal for type of bk
    3. i pick verify
    4. then i pick replace the data on the media with this backup ( its the only
    option )
    5 took the default bk labels
    6. name job and set schedul

    we have 2 week tape rotation
    what am i doing wrong ........

  2. On my DLT drive I went through each tape and made a simple one-file backup
    to initialize the tapes the first time. After that they didn't give me any
    trouble.
