Our tape backup system has an amber light flashing for the last few months – what does it mean?
In most cases it will be a warning that the tape heads are dirty and you need to run a cleaning tape. If you do that and the error is gone, you can proceed but have an engineer review the backup logs. In other instances there is a mechanical problem with the tape drive unit, and it may require a replacement. If you have any concerns or problems with your backup system, we are here to help you. Simply call us and we will get it taken care of.
