Sotty, that was an old mail that escaped out of some normaly unused 
spool dir...

I made the experience that you can write backups to DAT tapes without 
any trouble, but getting tha data back from the tape when you need them 
can be a nightmare. (Once I had to read three tapes to get a complete 
restore. Fortunately the data in question was static so I could use 
tapes from different backup generations.)
