Using a DDS5 tape drive to restore from a DDS3 backup tape.
I have a new system with an IBM DDS5 tape drive. I want to restore data from a backup that was made by a Seagate scorpion DDS3 drive. My understanding is that this should be possible. Is this correct? DDS5 = read and write compatible with DDS3? Also, do you think the difference in manufacturers will make a difference?
The reason I ask is that I get read errors on a known working backup.
