Additional sense indicates Id crc or ecc error. This indicates that your tape drive requires the scsi2logical paramater set. See above.

Some SCSI drives require the block size set. If you are having the above problem, try setting the set blocksize preference ON.
From 6.5, the names of the preference file, log files and info directories have been changed. Rename the following files/directories:
.taper_log ---> taper_log .taper_prefs ---> taper_prefs .taper_info ---> taper_info
Just recreate the info files from the main menu
The recursive link utility goes through your filesystem looking for links that are recursive (ie. end up pointing to themselves so that there is an infinite loop). This utility tries to find such recursive links. It finds them in one of two ways :
This way you can find & correct the offending link. Note recursive links are only a problem if you are backing up with hard links set to ON (ie. the file and not the link is backed up).
The new info file format from 6.8 is a sparse m-tree index. This is a very fast index file. However, because file names are 256 bytes under Linux, each file takes approximately 300 bytes of information and thus, the info files can grow quite big.
However, they do compress very well, so make sure that the compress info preference is ON. Also, if disk space is a problem, you can delete the files ending in `.1' and `.2' and reindex the files (from the utilities menu) when required.
From 6.8.0a11, the format of the backup sets changed to accommodate the exclude option. To convert your old backup sets, simply insert line with the letter 'I' before each filename. For example, if your backup set looked like:
/home/yusuf/dir1 /usr/docs /usr/local
the new backup set should look like:
I /home/yusuf/dir1 I /usr/docs I /usr/local
