If Backup Exec (a corporate backup program) is connected to a robotic tape backup system with its default settings intact, the software will attempt to eject a tape after the tape is full. You can change the settings within Backup Exec to disable the automatic tape ejection.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start," then "All Programs." Open the "Backup Exec" folder and click on the "Backup Exec" program name.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Options" button in the toolbar, then click "Preferences."

  3. 3

    Click on the "External media" tab.

  4. 4

    Uncheck the "Auto-eject tape drive" option, then click "OK."
