Backup Exec Format for Best Recovery?
I am currently backing up a single server (200 gigabytes) to external harddrives (using the Backup-to-Disk option) which are swapped out daily. I have a script scheduled to stop and restart all BE services before the scheduled backup time to ensure that the disks are recognized correctly - this seems to be working pretty well.
I am using BE10.d, which I understand stores information in "Windows Backup" format. What is the best configuration to optimize data restoration from those ".bkf" files (lets assume my office burns down and I have access to neither my server nor the the BE install media)?
1. Compression Type: Hardware
2. Password Protection: Enabled
3. Maximum File Size: 1 gigabyte
I realize 10.d is getting a little old, but it serves our purpose. Would I gain in recoverability by upgrading?
