A Save21 for them generated over 9,000 temporary tape write errors.
This compares to 6,160 temporary write errors we got Wednesday
42,051 temporary write errors we got yesterday (Thursday) morning.
What's everybody else's experience before/after a large save?
If I had as few as dozens of errors on a new tape I'd have a CE
looking at the drive.
On the 52 tapes that I have in regular rotation, I have zero temporary
read errors and zero temporary write errors. The TS2900 drive is
18 months old; the LTO3 tapes are about 6 years old. We save
600-700GB each night on these tapes.
There are another 20 or so tapes which get rotated in on a less
regular basis. They too are free of temporary read and write errors.
These tapes are even older than the regulars.
