Most autoloaders are intelligent devices and offer a great deal of media manipulation and control when the users has the necessary software required to be able to pause the flow of backup or restore data during tape changes. To allow you to use autoloaders, BRU comes with two scripts which you can modify for use with your autoloader(s).
