Re: How to take backup in HP RDX drive using backup exec 2014

RDX should be seen by both the Operating System and Backup Exec as Removable Disk/Removable Storage (and within Backup Exec you should have used the option to add removable storage when configuring it)

If you have somehow managed to configure it so that it is seen by Backup Exec as standard disk storage and NOT removable storage then you will be using it a mode of operation that we do not specifically test. In may work in a similar manner to how Backup Exec handles standard USB disks, however if there are problems, you may see issues with how the RDX eject, insert and possibly media reclaim operations are functioning.

Also as an aside an RDX cartridge is not a Tape (it actually contains a disk), as such you may cause confusion when if you use the term tape with such hardware.
