Thank you very much for the links. Very interesting FAQ! About backing up straight from disk to tape. Aren't you concerned about the shoe shining effect? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tape_drive#Performance_problems

@SpacemanSpiff : What is the "archive bit"? I have never heard of it before =( Is it something all Linux file systems have?

If Amanda doesn't need to the full backup tape images in the holding disk. Then how does Amanda then know if a file have changed? I mean, does it make a checksum of each file to see if the content have changed since last backup?
