How do I install at tape drive on NT Server?

A. Follow instructions below

  1. Bring up the Control Panel, and Double click Tape Devices
  2. Click on the Drivers Tab, and then click Add
  3. Select your tape drive (or if not the exact one, something close) and click OK
  4. NT will install the drivers
  5. Reboot your machine and you will then be able to use NTBACKUP

NT 4.0 will also detect and install certain tape drivers (such as 4mm DAT) which means there is no need for a reboot after the installation.
