Z-DATdump – Tape Backup Software

Z-DATdump was developed to copy data to tape easily and reliably. The complexity of the program was deliberately kept to a minimum, which makes it easy to use for an employee as well as an administrator. Z-DATdump is a cost-effective alternative when it comes to quickly and easily copying your data to tape.

Z-DATdump - Software – Tape backup

The tape dump software is easily installed and configurable with a well-structured user interface. Up to five dump lists can be defined, and it allows for quickly dumping a manually created dump-list to tape. With the integrated 1-click tape backup function, you can create desktop shortcuts for dump jobs, so you can quickly and comfortably start a tape dump without even using the software.

Z-DATdump lets you select your data for a 1:1, incremental or differential copy to tape. A Fast CRC check can optionally be enabled if the stored data should be verified after the tape dump. A big advantage of the tape software is the control via command-line parameters, which allows for integration of Z-DATdump into other applications.

Autoloader / Tape Library Software


The add-on module Z-TapeLoader extends the functionality of Z-DATdump by enabling it to control media changers, also called superloaders, autoloaders, tape changers and tape libraries. Media changers contain several tapes in so-called slots and allow automatic loading of the correct tape for your daily backups. This add-on module is already contained in a normal Z-DATdump installation and is used automatically.

The tapes are stored in the device in so-called slots. Z-TapeLoader then loads the tape from the slot that is specified in the settings of a 1-Click backup or a time-controlled backup. The 1-Click backup can be achieved simply by creating a desktop icon with the correct settings from within the software.
