The Intel system with Red Hat 3 ES is new. I'm learning how to backup and restore files. Posting I have read here have helped with small backups. But now, I intend to backup the entire system to tape.
I signed on as root.
I opened a terminal window.
# cd /
# tar -czf /dev/st0 /
The system freezes. No response to keyboard or mouse.
Any thoughts? How do I backup the whole thing?
