...our tape drive here at work finally bit the dust -- a good HP DLT 30 SCSI tape drive. The LEDs are going bonkers, and everything I find on the Web says there's a hardware failure if that persists. And it's persisting, making a whole bunch of nasty noises.
Anybody have a DLT tape drive they want to get rid of? Can you get it to me yesterday ;-) ? I just need to convince the bosses here that we need to a) invest in a GOOD tape solution, or b) use an offsite backup provider, otherwise, this will be all too common (it's the 2nd tape drive that's busted since I've been here). Apparently our data isn't important enough to invest in a good backup plan.
OK, done ranting, carry on...
