Backup - Invalid tape name (XP)
I've been trying to schedule backups using Windows Backup. I erased all the tapes, did a full backup on this blank tape, and named all the tapes "Backup tapes". When the schedule runs, it keeps giving me "invalid tape name" even though all the tapes are named "Backup tapes". If I do a manual backup, I have to go through a list of tapes named "Backup tapes" and pick the exact tape named "Backup tapes" that it wants. I'm not sure if Windows backup puts an ID on these tapes or what, but it's driving me nuts! Can I write a batch file that says backup to whatever tape is in the drive no matter what the name is? Help!
