I have had a Colorado T3000 tape backup drive for about 3 years. Until just recently, it worked fine. Just since Thanksgiving, it has taken longer and longer and longer to do a "full system backup". Most recently, it has taken more than 24 hours do back up and verify my full system.

I have called HP for technical help, and they've been nice and acomodating, but they haven't got a clue what's wrong. I bought new tapes and I retensioned a tape 4 times (HP's way of cleaning the head)and it still takes more than a day to backup my system.

I'd appreciate any help that anyone can offer me. Maybe I need a new backup system?
