HP StorageWorks Tape Library

I have a HP StorageWorks Tape Library in my office, which is just collecting dust.

Don't think we've ever used it before... Wonder if anyone out there still has any use for such machines?

never used. too complicated and too noisy to use. it's meant to be in a server room, which we don't have

we back up to hard disks, which of cos, isn't a great option, but at least it's easier to use and it gets done

if there's anyone out there who has a use for it, i'm willing to sell it cheap!

Woh, this item seems familiar which i have try to configure 5 years ago. Personally i think it is too big and bulky.
