    Hi,
    I have True Image 9.1 for windows server. I am backing up to tape (or want to) I have done a "Backup", "Entire Disk Contents", "Full", "Choose partitions", "Choose "Tape Drive", "Create Full New Backup" on 1 tape, Now what I want to do is to use the same tape for all the daily changes.

    If the system crashes all I need is that one tape correct?

    Or do I need the one Full tape archive, and another tape for incrementals or differentials?

    Thank you

    If there is room on the one tape for the full backup and all the incrementals, that should be the preferred way to go.

    How long does it take to make an image and restore it from tape?

    Tapes malfunction fairly frequently. Hopefully you have also created another backup tape--just for safety sake.:)
