Change tapes and then reuse the old ones.
Im using Backup Exec 12.5 for windows and an ultrium tape backup with 7 tapes.
I have 7 tapes in the ultrium and 14 new tapes
Lets assume that every 7 tapes compose a group, so Group A are in the ultrium, Group B are a pack of 7 new tapes and group C are a pack of other 7 new tapes.
I need to do this:
At the end of this month, I need to take out the 7 tapes (Group A) and put 7 of the new ones (Group B).
At the end of the next month, I need to change from Group B to Group C
At the third month, I wiil change the group C with the A Group
and so on.....
Do I need to use the vault feature ?, How ?
If Im using the C Group and I need to recover info from the A group, how can I acomplish this ?
I have doubts if this is the best procedure to do the backups.
Thanks in Advance
