Today I went to the computer store and bought a DVD-R/DVD-RW burner. The media is $14.95, expected to go down in price soon. I should be able to get 20-30 GB of AS/400 data on one of these compressed. Of course they are slow at writing. So download from AS/400 thru tape interface, put on fast hard drive, tcompress and write to DVD while the AS/400 continues on its merry way. And I saw a nice 160GB disk drive for the PC. $300 bucks, only 5400 RPM but that shouldn't make any difference in this application.mI can raid 4 together and get 320GB of save space. What fun. I sure hope that IBM DVD-RAM drive dfor the AS/400 is shipping. To slow to back up your AS/400 to, but fast enough to restore from. (although it would be faster to restore from my hard drive.) -- Brad Jensen firstname.lastname@example.org President Electronic Storage Corporation Tulsa OK USA 918-664-7276 LaserVault Report Retrieval & Data Mining www.Laservault.com www.eufrates.com - Add distance learning to your site with easy course preparation
