The array is 30 TB, mostly intended as a repository for VBR, so not really. Mind you, it is less than 30% full, but still that would be a ton of tapes.
The archive section in question is currently about 1 TB and will double in the next 6 months. I really intend(ed) to keep the archives on a WD4100 Pro NAS, but unless I make that part of a VM, I can't back it up with VBR, and VEP does not back up mapped drives. I had set the NAS as part of a VM, but that contributed to a catastrophe (complete loss of domain controller and all active projects on a VMW 6.0U1 system using CBT - but on a weekend right after a full backup which appears to have been unaffected by the CBT bug.... how lucky can I get and VBR restored it all in 3 hrs.
I could look for another backup pkg to backup the NAS instead of what I have done so far. I have unused licenses for two of your competitors whose pkgs I do NOT like... or WD has some kind of cloud backup system for the NAS, or I could use Google Drive, or I could use DropBox for Business, or AWS. Or something.
