tape backup mt .... erase slow
I have a 20/40 GB Compaq DAT drive. When I do mt -f /dev/st0 erase it takes a LONG time.
With ArcServe on my Novell server, I have a Quick Erase/Format option.
Is there a quick erase option with mt command.
Or is there no need to erase, does Dump just overwrite everything each time?
