Backup Exec 2012 - Media Sets Usage
At this time, I have five tapes for backups. It is done that on each tape include backup of the whole week, day after day, and then in the next week backup go to the next tape. In this way, at the end I have a backup of five weeks. I set the Overwrite Protection 4 weeks and Append Protection for 6 days. The solution is one small downside. If a tape be spoiled I can recover only the latest data from the end of the previous week. Of course, backup is duplicated, so it is protected. But I wonder whether it can better to backup each day on a separate tape, and when I have problem with tape, I can go back one day with backup. I wonder how to set the media sets to not allow append to tape only on selected days of the week. So the backup go on Monday and then BE shouldn't append to this tape until next Monday? Is such a solution is being used, or maybe some other? Of course, everyone has their own idea, but it's always worth to know what others think.
thanks for answers
