  1. Moving Backup Jobs between computers

    Hello -

    I have recently had to replace a tape backup drive, and would like to put it
    in another machine.

    Is there a way to transfer the Backup Jobs from one machine (running
    Windows98 V3.0a) to a machine that is running W2K V4.5a?

    If anyone knows if and how this can be done, it would be greatly
    appreciated.

    Scott

    All the backup jobs are stored in a file called profile.dat in the
    Seagate or Veritas installation directory. You could try copying that
    file over.
