Windows Tape Backup Software

By: Paul Abbey

Tape backup systems have been around for as long as the computer has. Even though technology has advanced somewhat some people still prefer to use this system for backing up data rather than the latest ways. In this article we will take a look at some of the different kinds of Windows tape backup software a person can still get hold of and use if they prefer to use this method to back up the information held on their computers.

One such software program that you may want to consider for your business is BackupAssist. This is not only an extremely reliable program for helping to backup all that important data you have on to tapes but is far less expensive than some of the other programs that are available. Currently the software program costs around $229 to purchase and is about a quarter the price of other leading products including CA Arcserve or Veritas BackupExec.

Compared to other types of tape backup software programs available today the BackupAssist has a number of distinct advantages to be had.

1. It is the cheapest of all the types of Windows tape backup software programs you can buy today.

2. It is very simple and easy for a person to be able to install it and then set it up to run.

3. It emails the person who is administrating the system with details relating to the backup logs carried out each time. Plus it allows the administrator to check the status of each tape backup from a remote location.

4. On a regular basis it will email a very simple instruction to the administrator or other member of staff with regard to rotation of the tapes. By having this feature it also means that there is much less chance or risk of an error occurring because a person has forgot to replace one tape with another.

5. The software programs are not only suitable for backing up data held on Windows servers but also on SQL and Exchange servers as well.

Because of the above features this actually means that the whole process of remembering and backing up important data held on computers and servers is achieved is much more hassle free.

All you need to do with this kind of Windows tape backup software program is choose your own particular backup process and then just sit back and wait. Once the process has been configured using the software then all the user has to do is wait for the instructions to start appearing on their and which are easy to follow. So who ever is placed in charge of making sure that the backups occur on time each day or week does not actually require any technical knowledge to do it as the software literally does it all for them.
