Yes, you should be able to take a full backup of NAS on Dell Powervault tape.
Backup depends on backup software you will be using on system whose data is stored on NAS.
Which software you going to use?
Thank you for the reply. I'll most probably use Symantec Backup Exec. Is it possible to access the root of the drive in any way to backup all the folders? That was my initial concern, because I've noticed that's not really possible.
Apologies for the delayed response.
Yes you can access the root of the drive and back up the files using symantec backup exec.
Do you know how to access the root via a file share? I am using CA ARCServe for Windows and would like to back mine up but don't know how to get to the root.
Have a found a solution on how to back up the entire SS4200-e?
I would be very interested, as this is the worst part on the SS4200-e.
I expected to connect a USB drive and backup the whole storage internally to that external hard drive.
Thanks for any tip,
