I am facing some problems while using this tool. It will be helpful if you can 
give some inputs on the below things

What are the commands and configurations I need to do for performing an archive 
to a network share path and on a local tape drive?
Do they log any information about the creation or extraction of the archived 
files? If yes which is the log file?
