    I have a Tape backup system that I just got running in Win 7. Consisting of a Adaptec 39320LPE SCSI host adapter, and a Dell Powervault 110T LTO 3 external drive ( It's an IBM drive actually ).

    I'm starting to get bad updates and update loops on my Win 7 computers so I've started to roll out Win 10 updates to them, and this is actually the last computer in my house to have Win 7 ( Dell OEM install disc used )

    I want the tape system to still work if I switch to 10. The adapter only has Win 7 support, but I've read those win 7 drivers work in Win 10. The card's bios dates it to 2007 so it is quite old.The drive operates at U160 and has a build date marked 2008. So everything was vista era or prior really. Zdatdump is Win 10 compatible.. Dell confirms that the drive is compatible with Server 2008R2, but I know it works with 7

    Do I have to stay with 7 or can I go 10?

    Do you need the functionality of the Adaptec driver or will the SCSI class driver work for you?

    I'm not really sure, I have not done anything with SCSI in a long time. Last was a DDS3 tape drive in an old Proliant server.. I just need the tape drive to work, I don't use SCSI for anything else
