Default Spanning

I know UltraBac 8 can perform spanning of backups to several tapes. However, I would like to backup from a drive to several DVDs. Is this possible and if so, should I be selecting the File-by-File backup method?

UltraBac Can send any type of backups to DVD. What you would need to do, is when you choose the backup device in the scheduler, you would select the dvd/cd device. When UltraBac Fills the 1st dvd you will be prompted to insert another one.

Hope this helps

Default No go

Derek, I spoke to you on the phone today. I tried what you suggested: to install Ultrabac onto my Desktop PC, but it is not working. Not sure if you were aware of what my intention is.

Ultrabac 8 is installed onto our Server1. I want to backup about 20GB of data which resides on my Desktop PC to an external USB DVD writer. This DVD writer is attached to my PC. When I tried to add device in Ultrabac on the CD/DVD tab, it won't allow me. The add button is greyed out. I tried what you suggested. To add the device under the Remote tab, but it won't see my device.
