BE2010R3SP2 - Backups Disappeared!!
Running BE 2010 R3 SP2. User requested I restore the SQL Backup from Monday night (3/18)'s backup. I attempted to do so on the 19th but failed, as job was saying it was unable to take the database offline. So, I figure I'll just work on it later. Tonight, I was able to kill all the connections to the database and attempted to do the restore again. To my surprise and frustration, all my backups are gone!! The only backup listed for the SQL server was tonight's (3/21) and last night's (3/20). When I configured the job, I told it to do full backups and to keep for 5 weeks!! I'm so frustrated!! What the hell happened?! Did I configure the B2D media wrong? I had it set at a max of 10 backup sets. Does BE automatically wipe out all the backups on the file and start from 0 again once it hits max? WTF HAPPENED?!?!?!
God, what the heck!? I'm so upset right now. I have other important servers that are all designed the same way and backing up the same way. If this is happening on every one of them....how am I suppose to answer to management if they ask me to restore a previous night's backup and it's not there?!?!!?!?
