The Sun Storedge C2 tape autoloader is designed to help businesses back up their critical files quickly and efficiently. Once the Storedge unit is in place, businesses can use their backup software to write their files to tape each night, protecting critical servers and equipment from data loss. The C2 holds between eight and 16 tapes, and operators must load new tapes when the old ones are full.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the "Main Menu" button on the front of the Sun Storedge C2 autoloader. Go to the "Commands" menu.

  2. 2

    Scroll through the list of options until you see "Eject." Choose "Left Magazine" or "Right Magazine" and press "Enter."

  3. 3

    Insert the tapes into the slots in the magazine. The tapes are designed so that they can only be inserted one way.

  4. 4

    Line up the magazine with the slot on the Storedge C2 autoloader. Push the magazine in as far as it will go and press the "Lock" button. The Storedge automatically reads the new tapes.
