Yes, and I think you mean a gig per Jaz drive.

You can spread the files of a particular session accross as many Jaz cartridges as you need to back up the session.

Default Jazz Drive?

All -

quick question about backing data up...

since Jazz drives only hold up to a meg, and our sessions normally go way longer than that, can we record different tracks and all its associated data to different Jazz drive cartridges?

I'm still having MAD HD problems...and want to make sure that I don't lose much of the hard work we've done.

THANX.

CIAO...

/Dennis

Retrospect is good back-up software, combined with a 4mm tape drive. APS technologies has some good options, so does Glyph technologies. I'd echo the previous statement about jaz carts, they can't be trusted for long!

i lost two complete projects when i used to naively back up to jazz. turns out the drive was bad and was taking chomps out of all discs inserted into it. fortunatley for me, they were my own personal projects so i did not get the axe.
iomega sent me a new disc and drive, but did not rerecord my projects for me.
my new drive and disc now sit there and do nothing, i will not use them. what a waste of my money.

also beware memorex cdr's. stay away!!!

Mezzo Pro Tools Archiver from Grey Matter Response at mezzogmr.com
the amount of backup depends on the size of tape you get. We use DDS 2 90m so its 2gig
per 4mm tape at $8.00 per tape on a Sony
SDT 5000 {old drive}
There are many different drives and tape formats you can use, Grey matter can help you decide.
It's definately the smartest backup I've seen it's very Pro Tools savy.

Hi Dennis

I'll join in the chorus about hating the Jaz format which has bitten most of us in the past. I actually still have the remnants of a Jaz drive I'd thrown across the room.

For quicker transfer of files I've been using a new 2.2gig Orb drive which retails around $229 and the 2.2 gig disks are around $39 each. So far I've never had any cause me problems (but this is fairly new - only about 2 months).

For my main backups I use Retrospect and a DDS drive which has seemed the most solid for me - I did have a lot of trouble on a recent project where we were backing up to an AIT drive, and we had a lot of tape problems, and eventually switched over to DDS4.

Good luck.

Rail
