BE2010R3SP2 - Proper way to create a B2D Device plus backup job
My end goal is to be able to create a backup job that writes to a B2D file(s). I need to do full backups Monday to Saturday written to B2D file(s) and kept for 2 weeks. A full backup job on Sunday that is written to B2D file(s) and then duplicated to tape. Both the tape and file on Sunday needs to be kept for 5 weeks.
Ideally, it will use one file for Monday to Saturday of the first week, a second file for Sunday of the first week, a third file for Monday to Saturday of the second week, a fourth file for Sunday of the second week, a fifth file for Monday to Saturday of the third week, a sixth file for Sunday of the third week, then reuse the first file from the first week for Monday to Saturday of the fourth week, reuse the second file from the first week for Sunday of the fourth week, and so on. By re-use, it would be nice if it would append to the file and if the backup job will not fit, then it will overwrite.
What is the proper way/settings to create the B2D device so that it will create 100GB files and overwriting said files ONLY AFTER the length of time we want to keep the data?
What is the proper way of building the job to backup the server, using the B2D device and files so that data is maintained for the specified amount of time?
I've read through the documentation already. I've built the jobs already; however, BE will keep the data for so many days and then wipe the files. One day I see 8 to 10 backups on the file, the VERY NEXT day, I only see the previous night's backup. There's only one B2D file created in the folder. I'm obviously doing something very wrong.
