Default Error codes

I am new to UltraBac, "4 days" 2 if you don't count the weekend... I keep getting errors;

Could not open device Tape0, error:(170-The requested resource is in use.)
The device is already in use error=0159

I followed the "common error directions" but could not find any additional processes running.
any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Device in use errors are usually caused by another process actively writing to or reading from the device. Please ensure that there is not another ub.exe process running that could possibly be writing to that tape drive, and also check that there is no instance of any other backup software, including NTBackup, running.
If all else fails, reboot your machine, and you will have access to your tape drive again.
