Backup Tapes being Overwritten
I have 5 backup jobs which run on a Monday night and finish on Tuesday morning using 2 tapes. The first job overwrites the media, the other 4 jobs are set to append to media and terminate if no append able media is found. Backup Byte count for 5 jobs totals 650GB and tape byte count shows 350GB this prompted me to look at doing a restore from the backup tapes and displaying whats on the tapes, only data from the last 2 jobs are available. How can these jobs overwrite data on the tape if the properties of the jobs are set to append to media or terminate if no appendable media?
