    Back up tapes

    Hi all ,

    Has anyone used "Symantec Backup Exec 10d for Windows Servers" with HP Ultrium data cartridge 200gb Tapes. I have put the tape in and I want to format it but for some reason the Format feature is grayed out.

    Many thanks

    Are you sure the tape needs formatting?

    Well it's a new tape, and as far as I know my collegue formats the new tapes and gives them a name.

    Thanks,

    Does the packaging say it is formatted or not? Is the option to label the tape available?

    I have done it a few hours ago but forgot to let you know, by changing the media label it gave me the option to erase the tape.

    Thanks,
