Backup Exec 7.0 (error during backup) Backup Exec 7.0 (error during backup) jimpof (MIS) (OP) 7 Mar 00 11:51 During backups i frequently get a cyclic redundancy error and the backup ends. (This is new for me...thanks for the answers). RE: Backup Exec 7.0 (error during backup) mhrubes (MIS) 9 Mar 00 17:55 Jimpof- From my experience, if you are getting the error on different tapes (especially brand new tapes), it is a sign the tape drive is going bad. If it happens on one tape in particular, then most likely that tape is causing the issue. Here is the article from Veritas themselves... http://seer.support.veritas.com/tnotes/bewnt/192216.htm Try following the steps included in the article and see if that helps clear up the problem...Many times just an extra cleaning can clear up this issue. RE: Backup Exec 7.0 (error during backup) jimpof (MIS) (OP) 14 Mar 00 11:47 Thanks, cleaned it 4-5 times and the problem didn't reoccur since.
