Backing up in Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I have someone here who says that their vista machine can not backup to a DAT72 drive via the backup tool which came with the system.

    The drivers were found and installed and the drive is recognized by the computer as being present.

  • Hi Rennex

    Tape backup is not supported by the Vista backup components.

    More in formation is in the following article.
