Just to add insult to injury, my tape drive (DDS3) failed today.
Actually, it’s been failing for quite a while … I’ve just been ignoring it.
I’ve had that tape drive for a long time, so I guess it’s about time it quit.
I placed an order for a HP DDS4 tape drive.
The new tape drive is an external USB2 unit while the old drive is an internal SCSI drive. This has the obvious advantage of allowing me to use the new tape drive on any of my systems.
