Well, that's close to what I said. :-) So any idea how can I specify to run more clone jobs that the number of physical drives in the library? I know that regular backup jobs (i.e., not backup clones) will execute more jobs simulataneously than there are physical drives. Someone posted that they thought that backup clone jobs were single-threaded, and thus if I have 4 drives, only 4 backup clone jobs would execute at one time.

Clone jobs are single-threaded - that is correct. One session at a time, requiring one drive to read and one drive to write.
