Backup to disk (pool) keeps creating folders and .cfg files
We use 2 removable harddisk to rotate weekly. Some jobs run on seperate times. They have the same backup set but different device targets.
Harddisk 1: created a folder called disk1 and subfolder for each job.
Harddisk 2: folder called disk2 also subfolders with same name for device.
Created a pool per job, so 2 devices per pool.
This went fine the 1st week. After the change of disk on friday and restart of the backup exec services, I see strange behaviour.
Today disk 1 is in the server. The folder (device) existst. Somehow at the start of the job it tries to acces the device for disk 2 (previous week). It can't find it (thats OK) so it looks in the pool for another device, and finds it in disk1 folder. So it starts. But .... it did create the folder structure for disk 2.
So it did not find disk 2, uses disk 1, creates folder for disk 2. I am afraid that it will use the disk 2 folder created on disk 1 the next run allthough the physical disk 1 is in the server.
How can I prevent the creation of another folder?
I thought that using pools would prevent this. The job should look for an available device within the pool. When it finds one, use it.
