BE2012 Incrementals to disk, Full to tape?
I've seen similar questions asked, but none of those had an exact answer as to whether this was possible.
The root and cause of the problem is that we are struggling for disk space due to the BE 2012 not giving the simple option of "delete the oldest backup on the disk only when it meets a threshold I set".
As a result I have to 'guess' how many backups I can fit on each disk, resulting in much wasted disk space.
This also prevents me joining my 5 disks as a RAID array as that would only increase the headache of working out how many times each server could fit on it.
Due to this, I want to change things to do a Friday Full backup to disk, and then Incrementals to disk Mon-Thurs.
Each day I want a 'full' duplicate to tape. So by the time it reaches Thursday night, I want it to backup last Friday's Full backup, as well as all the Incrementals since.
I only ever want to be restoring from a single tape to make disaster recovery as simple as possible.
So is the above possible?
Is there any work around I can use if not?
