    I want to create a new cleaning job, but I'm always refered to robots, in
    the tool bar utilities the "clean" word is unavailable and I can't create
    a robot because I have just a stand alone drive, I need to know HOW TO CREATE
    A CLEANING JOB IN A STAND ALONE DRIVE. THANKS

    IMHO that is not possible because of the mechanics of a clean job. In a
    robot the clean job takes the cleaning tape, puts it in the drive, and
    when the drive finishes cleaning takes it out.

    A standalone drive has no way to get a cleaning tape.
    When you manually enter a cleaning tape the drive starts cleaning, no
    matter what job is scheduled, so just make it a regular procedure to put
    in a cleaning tape every week or so while changing tapes.

    Marcel is correct. There is no way to schedule an automatic cleaning
    for a stand-alone tape drive.
