Removable Storage Manager

Updated: October 16, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7

After being reduced to an optional component in previous releases of the Windows and Windows Server operating systems, Removable Storage Manager (RSM) has been removed. Windows Backup no longer supports writing directly to sequential (tape) backup devices so RSM is no longer required. Third-party backup software does not use RSM, but manages backup device objects directly.
