Backup exec 2012 backup to tape strategy
I'm using Backup Exec 2012 to backup the files and vms. Current backup plan is backup to dedup disk then to tape. My autoloader has partittion configured.
partition 1 is from slot 1 to 3 (daily backup)
partition 2 is slot 4 (monthly Backup)
partition 3 is slot 5 (empty slot)
partition 4 is slot 6 and 7 (VM backup)
partition 5 is slot 8 ( cleaning tape)
The overwrite protection for tape is set to 2 weeks and append is infinite.
What happens if the tape have been written 60% and the following backup job to the tape needs more than 40% of the tape capacity. Let's say the overwrite protection for the tape is over.
Does it delete the exisiting data on the tape before running the backup job?
