but since v8.6 is no longer supported (and hasn't been for quite a while ) new tape drives do not appear on it. As long as the drive uses industry standard calls for communication, it SHOULD work with any version of Backup Exec, it's just that there are no guaranteesMessage was edited by:

Thanks Ken,

Not everyone has the funds to purchase the new version:) I am going to download the trial of 10 and see if it makes a difference, if it does I should be able to convince the third party.

thanks for the help
