4.1 PC-Oriented Backup Packages




Description

This article is from the storage FAQ part2, by Rodney D. Van Meter with numerous contributions by others.

4.1 PC-Oriented Backup Packages

    I don't think any of the PC operating systems come with tape support
built in, so you have to have some 3rd party software to work with
tape. This short list is primarily oriented toward PC servers.
It's partly derived from PC Magazine, March 29, 1994, pp. 227-272.

Note that there has been an ongoing discussion of the pitfalls of
Windows 95 and third-party backup software; many in particular are
having trouble with long file names.
