Windows Server Incremental’s Backup with an RDX-1000 (HP) or RD-1000 (Dell)

Hi everyone

Ever worried on how to do an incremental backup to an RDX-1000 tape device ? as Windows Backup Service detect the device as like a hard drive, but not completely an USB stick either, so without the tip a lot of administrator finish by using a share into the device to make a full backup each day.

The small tip I found is;

  • Create a VHD into the RDX-1000 tape.

  • Mount it as a drive.
  • And now use that drive as a destination !

That way you can have incremental backup  🙂
