    I am trying to use NT Backup on a 2000 SP4 server to backup 2 shared folders and the system state. I am setting it up as a scheduled job and it keeps failing because it cannot find the correct media or no unused media. I basically want it to do a nightly backup, a different tape every day of the week, and I just can't get it to work. The media label and pool is confusing me. It seems I can get it to backup once to the tape but then when I want to overwrite the tape next week it fails because it cannot find the appropriate media. I have even tried the /um switch in the backup job but I can't get that to go either. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?? Or is there a freeware backup program that may make this easier. I am backing up to a Travan 10/20 GB drive.
