DiRT Backup to DAT-USB

Unanswered Question
Jan 31st, 2008

Can someone please advise how to configure DiRT to backup directly to the DAT-USB-RM-72. I am running Unity 4.21 w/ failover on W2K3. I have no drive letter assigned to the tape drive.

Also, one of my Unity servers (primary server) didn't pick up the device via add remove hardware and now lists as an "unknown device" in Device Manager. When I run the driver install exe, off of the device drivers CD, Windows states the best driver is installed. This is very odd because my secondary server picked up the device without issues. Both servers were configured with the same platform configuration disk.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have this problem too.

You'll need to configure windows to backup to tape a specific directory that you do a dirt backup to. Dirt does not backup to tape drives.

That's what I thought. Thanks for clarifying this for me.
