Multiple USB drives

Post by mwjag2k » 06 May 2011, 15:19

I'm using Firestream-RM currently to present our USB Removable 1TB hard drives as a tape drive to Backup Exec.
I have another USB drive chassis I want to use as well.

Is Firestreamer capable of presenting two devices as tape to Windows/Backup Exec, somehow? Can I maybe run multiple instances of the application?

Firestreamer-RM is a single tape drive. Only one tape can be in a tape drive at any given time. You can use two USB removable drives as two tapes, but only one drive (tape) at a time.
