BUE 2012 Full and Incremental Question to different media
I am using BUE 2012 to backup 5 servers, and my tape libraries are rotated every 3 weeks between 2 sets. I also make quarterly archives. For the most part, this scenerio works well for us. However, there was recently a situation where a user modified a file and it was not noticed for 10 weeks. Unfortunately in this scenerio the file did not exist on a tape that I could recover from. I do not really want to add another library set just to extend the protection period on this one particular directory. What I would like to do it add an external hard disk, configure a BU2Disk, and add an additional backup job to protect this directory. I am concerned that whenever I run a backup of this directory to the external disk, it will impact the backup jobs to the tape library if the archive bit is reset? I do not see a "copy" backup option, so I am not sure the best way to proceed.
