Chapter 33. Managing the Hard Disk > Removable Storage Manager

Removable Storage Manager

The Removable Storage Manager is another MMC snap-in. Its job is to track and catalog the data stored on removable storage devices. These devices can take the form of tape backup drives, MO drives, JAZ drives, or the changers that control many removable storage devices. The Removable Storage Manager works by allowing you to create media pools—collections of media to which the same management properties (such as security permissions or backup routines) apply.

The Removable Storage Manager is another of those "buried" Windows 2000 features that you're not likely to know about unless you know where to look. The best way to access it is through the Computer Management Console. Just open the Control Panel, click Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management. In the right pane, expand Storage and click Removable Storage. From here, you can create and manage media pools and also get information about the physical locations for media.
