Does Backup Assist support the use of Tape loader?
Is there a plan to support these devices?

Hi there,

My name is Casey, and I'm with the BackupAssist team. Thanks for posting on our forum.

Unfortunately, BackupAssist does not support automatic tape loaders. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Since Microsoft dropped support for tape drives/loaders after Server 2003, most Windows users have begun to transition from tape to disk backup destinations

At the current time, BackupAssist does not have any plans for supporting automatic tape loaders.

I hope this helps, please let me know if you have anything further to add.
Kind regards,

Casey Burns
