Backup Exec 2010 R3 Backup to USB rotation disk keeps filling up
Hello again everybody,
I have 3 different USB hard drives that I swap out in a weekly rotation to perform backup to disk operations on this SBS 2011 server. I only have 1 drive on the server at any given time. I swap out the USB drives on Friday, then perform a full backup and then differentials in between until the next Friday. The problem I am running into is that even though I have "overwrite media" setup on all jobs (full and differential) being performed the devices continue to fill up.
I also have overwrite protection set to 0 Hours as well as Append period to 1 hour for the Media set property on each job. Thus, I would guess it should overwrite whatever is on the USB disk when the backup occurs (which it doesn't) I have a low disk threshold set to 50G at which the job will be suspended. Even when I started with empty USB drives, they eventually filled up and then I have to manually delete backup files from the external drives in order to free up space. Is there anything I can do to make this work without having to constantly delete old backups from these disks manually?
Thanks a lot for any help!
