It should be a no brainer, but....

The backup of my laptop has reached the point where it now requires 2 tapes. And, it has been on my list to get new tapes to keep both backup setups happy.

But, I seem to have this deliema.

Do I buy a new tape drive and different tapes...and probably a new SCSI controller...for more money than I have (and will likely be able to come up with during the remainder of this year, and still meet other objectives U-( ).... Or just buy more DLT IV's.

The reason this seems hard, is the other day in an unrelated search on eBay...I saw what kind of price I might be able to score an LTO drive. 100GB per tape is still an improvement from my current 35GB per tape.

Doing this will free up the 'good' DLT IVs from the other setup to my laptop backup setup.

It however doesn't address the fact that I have 3 other systems, largely running with no backups...with significantly more data at risk.

Perhaps I need to get a network backup system of some sort. :lalala:

I guess short term I'll just look to acquiring yet more DLT-IVs....

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
