This error appears about 10% into a BE Desktop Pro backup on Win2k Pro using
a Seagate Tapestore 20 USB drive attached to a Dell Inspiron 8000 with
Advanced Port Replicator. I have repeated the error with two different, new
tapes. The description offers no insight as to what's wrong -- "An error
was reported while writing the backup data. The backup dcvice reported an
unexpected error."

I did not have any problems with Dantz Retrospect s/w which also came with
the drive, but prefer BE's interface and options.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Larry Goldstein
