It asking you to overwrite because that is how you set up the backup job. Setup a new backup job using append instead of normal backup and the message will go away. Its not problem its a feature to prevent you from overwriting data.

Clean drive esl322e


You can open the housing, and remove the drive. Then open the drive, and use air under pressure to remove dust. Be careful, because if you don't know how the mechanism works, it could be the drive will not take in a tape at all.
I do have a IBM manual, where they show how to open the thing, but it is not easy. The ultrium LTO full high drives are all the same.
And I don't know how to get it with you.

Tape backup is very slow through output 250mb/min


What software are you using for the backup? If it is Data Protector, uncheck the software compression on your Data Protector window.

We are trying to backup data files in tape drive 5 of 9 dirves but after backup by about 2 GB , there was a error , ''media full''. Product : ESL712E Product ID : HP Ultrium 2-SCSI


Tape drives are an antiquated backup solution. For less than $100 you can buy a 1 Terabyte USB 2 hard drive with space to back up even the most data-intensive systems.

HP Ultrium 920 LT03 Drive - All media is 'Write protected'


It sounds like you have broken the write protect lever (that senses the WP tape switch position ) when you removed the tape.

This is a common problem when people lever out the tape without knowing that this lever helping is holding the tape in the drive.

Yes it will need to go away for a repair i am afraid

Try www.tape-drive-repair.com for this. They charge £295 for the repair (so at the lower end of your quoted prices) but they do then offer a 1 years warranty on the drive so you should be OK for some time to come.
