Say if I have configured a 6 day backup cycle - Day 1 full back up and rest Incremental...and on day 2 (when its scheduled for a incremental backup job) I have a blank tape in the tape drive...

Will the backup job still exceute or will it fail/abort? Thanks!

Hello Subhajit, it would work fine because Backup Exec would also have a copy of the Catalogs. During the restore process(disaster recovery), you would need all the tapes used by the Incrementals and the tape used by the Full. 

Please refer to the following to get more details on Full+Incremental backups:
