I've recently found myself in possession of an external SCSI tape drive along with a BIG stack of media for it(I found in a computational chemistry lab clean out, which has yielded a lot of interesting stuff). In any case, since my most-used Quicksilver already has a SCSI card with the correct interface in it, and I have probably 50 tapes, I figure I have nothing to lose by at least trying it out. The drive uses HP DDS-1 tapes, which, from what I can find are 90m each and are 2gb/4gb. I'm just curious as to what actually using this as a backup device would entail. Would I need a special program to "talk" to the tape drive, or is there a built-in Apple utility that I could use. I'd appreciate any thoughts on this.
