Frequently asked Questions

What is the file format on a Quantum RDX disk?

The Quantum RDX cartridge is preformatted with the Windows NTFS file format, which is required by the GoProtect software and most Windows applications. It can, however, be reformatted for another operating system if desired.

Does Quantum RDX work in a Linux environment?

Quantum RDX is tested and certified with RedHat Enterprise Linux v3 and v4 (or greater) and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server v9 and 10 (or greater). Other Linux distributions are likely to work, although they have not been specifically tested. However, the GoProtect software is Windows-only, so Linux users will need to have their own backup software or use archiving features provided by the operating system.

Which backup software is compatible with Quantum RDX?

Quantum RDX can be used with most software packages that can mount removable disk devices. Quantum RDX is certified to be compatible with the leading backup packages most commonly used in small and medium business, such as Symantec Backup Exec, EMC Retrospect, and Computer Associates ARCserve.

Can Quantum RDX be used for “bare metal restore” disaster recovery?

Quantum RDX cartridges are preformatted in NTFS with a master boot record, so if you are using backup software that supports bare metal restore on Quantum RDX and your computer system BIOS will support RDX as a bootable device, this will work. In general, a removable SATA device is not supported as bootable (create a boot CD instead), while a removable USB device is generally bootable. In any case, the provided Quantum GoProtect™ software will not do a bare metal restore.
