I've been using amanda for a few years. I like that I can do a
backup with just "amlabel home tapeXX ; amdump home" and get a nice
little email in the morning. Note that I've only ever used amanda
in write-direct-to-tape-mode - I've never had a separate spool disk.
Also- thanks for reminding me to do another backup :-)
