I have seen my system just bog down when I open the print to tape under file. I usually have to reboot the system to get any decent operation to do this. It seems that the print to tape is a massive memory hog. Does anyone know anything about this or have this experience too?
I have a Super micro PDC6+ mb, dual 2.4 gig, 1 gig Ram memory running under Windows 2000 SPk Pk 4.
Thanks
Randy

I get all kind of weird behavior if I am running VT already then attach 422 and try to print to tape. Sometimes just killing Print toTape before attaching deck works but usually I try to make sure VT is shut down, patch machine, then run VT. If I don't I often end having to reboot.
