Question about Computers & Internet
Do you have it set for Incremental back-up or complete back-up? Incremental it searches for changes to files and only backs up the changes, Full back up is like it says, it backs everything up. If your set to incremental back up, if you installed an update it may have done this by default without your knowledge, change it to full back up. Incremental sometimes hangs. Also, run a full check desk on both the source and back up drives. This condition can be caused by a faulty sector or corrupted file that can usually be fixed with a simple check disk. Check your naming settings as well. Make sure it is set to auto name the files or set it to name the back ups by date so that it isn't trying to save the file with the same name as previously used. I know it sounds rudimentary but I have seen this as an issue before. Don't trust previous settings if you have used automatic update or allowed an update to any of your software or OS as on occasion when an update goes in it will change your default settings or make changes to your user settings without your knowledge. This may take a few post to isolate as it is most likely something simple and those are the most difficult to find as we search for bigger problems.

Tips for a great answer:
This restores the PC to the condition it was in when the Complete Backup was made. If a Complete Backup was never made, this can still be used to restore the PC to its initial status. (Out of the Box condition)
Warning: A Complete restore erases all current files, settings, programs and other data and replaces them with the files, settings, programs and other data contained in the Complete Backup. In other words, it restores your computer to the way it was when you made the Complete Backup. Also, note that any programs installed after the Complete Backup will still need to be reinstalled.
To perform a Complete Restore, follow these steps:
Important: Make sure you have power connected to the PC. If power is lost during a restore, you need to start the process again from the beginning.
Warning: If you have data on drive C that you do not want to lose, stop now and perform a Data Backup.
Note: You will need to perform an additional restart for Windows to apply its changes.

Try the following action to resovle your issue:
1. Run the Drive Assessment Test in HP StorageWorks Library and Tape Tools.
CAUTION: Running the Drive Assessment Test overwrites the tape. If it is not possible to
overwrite the tape, run the logs-based Device Analysis Test instead.
2. Check the backup logs.
3. Verify that a supported configuration is being used.
4. Check for media damage:
o Incorrect label placement
o Broken, missing, or loose leader pin
o Damaged cartridge seam
o Usage in incorrect environment
5. Check for software issues:
a. Check the backup software.
b. Check that virus scanning software is not scheduled to run at the same time as the back-up.
6. Verify that a tape can be formatted.
Tape Error LED is flashing:
1. Reload the suspect tape. If the Tape Error LED stops flashing, the problem has cleared.
2. Load a new or known good tape. If the Tape Error LED stops flashing, the problem has cleared.
3. Reload the suspect tape. If the Tape Error LED flashes, discard the suspect media as faulty.
From my experience, most of the time it is a bad tape, using a new tape usually solves the problem. If after inserting a new tape and the problem exist, you may need to update your firmware/backup software.
