: 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?

: Please write me at

: Thanks

OK, So what O/S are you running? What backup program are you running? What technology for your TD(ie. what tape type do you use?) How long time did it take before? What are you backing up? More info please... We cannot guess.
