Backup to Disk and then to Tape
I don't know if this is a new suggestion or if this is a capability in Backup Exec that I haven't discovered.
When I backup with Backup Exec 2010 R3. I have some jobs that Backup to Disk, then with the policy I have a Duplicate backup the data to Tape
I constantly have to battle running out of disk space, and jobs failing because there was some issue that kept the Tape drive busy. I would like to be able to see when my backup to disk media has been copied to Tape. Knowing this would insure that I am getting these backups to Tape. I regularly have to free up disk space to keep the Backup to Disk running, and with all the jobs I have running, it is hard to determine which have been backed up to Tape.
One way I see would be a good solution if it is possible is: A policy or rune that changes the status of the disk media to Overwritable after the disk media is copied "successfully" to Tape? Or even better yet update the overwritable expiration date based on the completion of a successful duplicate to disk copy.
I do not have Advanced Disk based backup option, does this provide such a feature?
