Tape Question..

thanks for Lance .

i got solution about this question,my solve as following:

shell > tar -cjvfM /dev/st0  /backup_source

   <<  -M, --multi-volume
              create/list/extract multi-volume archive   >>

it will show a report when tape was full-up!!!!!  then it will note us to change other new tape !

then, we just put in the new tape into tape device! THAT'S ALL!   ;-)

Hello List :

	I have a big size file about 33G in /home directory !!! and i wanna backup this file into tape device....

Unfortunately, My tape just 24G(compressd).....so that i must be change tape when data write into tape device...

How should i do???  

shell > tar cjvf /dev/st0 /home       (IT IS NOT WORKING! Because, my tape maxima size only 24G )
