Need new solution for backing up Windows servers - HP StorageWorks 920 crashed
Hello: I am new to this forum, please forgive me if I am posting in the wrong area.
I support a company with 11 servers, currently they have a HP StorageWorks Ultrium 920 tape unit. I replaced an IT person who left the company and gave me no information as to how the backups were being done using Backup Exec 2010.
From within Backup Exec I see differential were performed Thu-Sun and full backups done on Friday and Monday nights.
At this time, all the tapes appear to be unusable, saying they are "write-protected" and no matter which tape I use, for example "Friday Week 4" or "Monday Week 1" - they all won't work.
So I am looking for a solution. Should I just start with a fresh set of tapes, and lose the backups for a couple days, or should I pursue a more modern hardware solution? This is a surgery center so there is a lot of patient chart information which cannot be lost.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you,
