I am trying to setup NTbackup that is built into Windows 2000 Server to run nightly unattended backups. After the first time the tape is used to backup something, NTbackup will rename the tape with the tape name it was previously, and then it adds a - 1 to the end of it. Ex. Tape prepared before first use: "Monday" Tape after the first backup: "Monday -1" So when the next Monday rolls around, the scheduled backup job is looking for the tape labeled "Monday", but because NTbackup previously renamed it, the job will fail because it can't find the "Monday" tape. Can anyone please explain to me why NTbackup is adding the - 1 to the end of the tape name, and tell me how to keep this from happening. Thanks!
