Hi ysrinath24,
if i want erase or remove some particular data from tape slot means how i want do ?

It’s impossible to remove the particular data – all tape media should be marked as free or erased instead.

Does anyone have experience with A13 driver for TL2000? There are two options for nonexlusive:

install_nonexclusive_dpf.exe
install_nonexclusive_no_dpf.exe

Both can't be installed so I will contact Dell Support, but perhaps someone uses the A13 driver with Veeam?

Are you sure, you need the Data Path Failover driver (_dpf on the end). Regular install_nonexclusive.exe file is a part of the 7NH5M_ZPE.exe driver file once you extract it :wink:

P.S. Is A13 a driver revision?

I see that the 7NH5M_ZPE.exe driver seems to be the right one, so thanks a lot.
A13 (6GCC2) is a driver revision and I asked Dell support and got the information that I have to do a firmware update first before using this driver. Unfortunately the backup of our Veeam files with Backup Exec will start now so I will try it tomorrow once again. I just want to verify that my library is working with Veeam before I stop using Backup Exec (what I am really waiting for :D ).

Good! A couple of manual test backups and restores is always a must before leaving it in automated mode for any solution.

Funny thing: I do see the latest is A14 but I won’t ever use it if the support team has referred to the previous version

I can verify that everything works fine with the 7NH5M-driver. I tested some backups and restore of VMs and files and it works. Just telling a software to backup something to tape and it does what you want is a strange feeling when you are customer of Backup Exec for many years. :D
