Backup Tape Replacement
by John Grissom

With this latest file-deleting virus rearing its ugly head, now more than ever we need to ensure proper tape backup. I run a process every morning that checks county servers to see if the automatic backup was successful the night before. The errors I am receiving indicate that the tapes are nearing the end of their lifespan. I would suggest the 40 originally networked offices invest in a new set (5) of backup tapes to replace the daily originals. The monthly tape is still usable for a long while. ETCS can order these tapes for you at the cost of $120 per 5 pack. Please e-mail ETCS if you wish to order or have any questions. Happy computing!
