Viewing storage device properties

Backup Exec provides details on each storage device connected to a media server and the first robotic library drive.


Support for a single robotic library drive for use with Backup Exec is provided when you purchase Backup Exec. To enable support for additional robotic library drives, you must purchase the Library Expansion Option.

Most of the details presented in the device properties tabbed pages are for information only.
