In-person assistance for LTO install in Manhattan? (paid)
In-person assistance for LTO install in Manhattan? (paid)

Hi Everyone,

I'm installing a tape drive on a Mac Pro Mid 2010 model. Here are the specs:

Drive: HP LTO-6 Ultrium 6250
SAS Card: Areca 1320-4i4x 8-port
Cartridges: Quantum LTO6 Tapes

It's been sitting half installed for months because I got way too busy to deal with it, and that's not good because it's supposed to be part of our backup process!

Anyway, anyone here in the NYC area that I can pay to come in for a few hours and get it running smoothly?

Get in touch here or email me at eric@kornhaberbrown.com

Thanks!
Eric

Hi Eric,

I'll save you some time and money - you can't use tape with the Areca or Highpoint SAS cards. You MUST use an ATTO card.

BTW - we urge you to use either HP or Fujifilm branded LTO media for best results and longest drive life.
