S.G.I. system backup



Peter,
   Most SCSI tape drives will work well with any SGI. The most common are 
Exabyte 8200 and 8500 series. The Exabyte 8505 can also work but it has 
interchange problems with older tapes due to it's optional hardware 
datacompression. The 8505 needed patches to the Irix 5.3 OS but is supported 
in Irix 6.2.
